Helping in the fight against cardiovascular disease

The Cardiac Research Excellence Wave (DalCREW) is a multidisciplinary group of Dalhousie-affiliated clinical and basic science researchers who are involved in studying cardiovascular biology, cardiovascular disease and health issues.

Our research group was created to enhance collaboration between researchers and to facilitate the sharing of resources and complementary expertise. Our ultimate goal is to find new therapeutic strategies and improve outcomes for patients with cardiovascular disease.

DalCREW researchers are making progress every day in the fight against cardiovascular disease. Areas of research strength include:

  • heart failure
  • arrhythmias
  • diabetes
  • mechanics
  • inflammation
  • aging/frailty
  • sex differences in cardiac function
  • developmental biology
  • regulation of cardiovascular function
