About the Center
The Center for Cardiovascular and Muscle Research (CCMR) is a campus-wide collective of SUNY Downstate researchers focused on the application of molecular genetics to the understanding of cardiac and muscle cellular physiology, lipid metabolism, and cardiovascular disease.
Since its inception in 1993, the Center has provided a scientific infrastructure that has facilitated the convergence of basic with clinical research. This convergence has brought the latest technologies of the ongoing revolution in molecular genetics to bear on problems in clinical cardiology, muscle diseases, and metabolic syndromes.
