Thrombosis & Atherosclerosis Research Institute (TaARI)


The objective of TaARI is to carry out basic, clinical, and epidemiological research in thrombosis, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease including venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, coronary heart disease, arrhythmias, congestive heart failure, cardiac thromboembolism, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral vascular disease. The scope of the research is broad, extending from the basic laboratory to the bedside and beyond into the local, national and international communities. A unique feature of TaARI is that the research is driven by clinically relevant problems which, if solved, have the potential to be translated rapidly into more efficacious and cost-effective patient care or preventive strategies.
