Cardiovascular Genetics

Cardiovascular genetics is a field of study that focuses on understanding the genetic basis of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), which affect the heart and blood vessels. These diseases include conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart failure, congenital heart defects, arrhythmias, and others.

In cardiovascular genetics, researchers investigate how genetic variations contribute to the risk, development, and progression of cardiovascular diseases. This involves studying the inheritance patterns of these diseases within families, identifying specific genes or genetic mutations associated with increased susceptibility to CVDs, and understanding the molecular mechanisms by which these genetic factors influence cardiovascular health.
