The Cardio-CARE at Medizincampus Davos, Switzerland, is funded by the Kühne Foundation. With 13 million Swiss Francs, it enables the largest research program to date for genome decoding in German-speaking regions. The main aims of our project are to
- better understand the genetic basic of cardiovascular diseases,
- improve its diagnosis, and
- identify drug targets.
This multidisciplinary project benefits from the intensive collaboration between the Kühne Foundation, the University Medical Center Zurich (USZ), and the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE).
“In future, diseases will be better avoided and cured if we help the medical profession to better understand the occurrence of disease in each individual.”
