Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS)

Joseph C. Wu, MD, PhD, FAHA

The American Heart Association (AHA) created the Council on Basic Cardiovascular Sciences (BCVS) in 1999 to promote research and education. Our goal is to improve understanding of mechanisms of basic cardiovascular regulation to support the development of new therapies and insights into clinical cardiovascular disease. Special emphasis is placed on integrating molecular/cellular and physiological approaches to address problems relating to functional genomics, cell signaling, myocardial biology, circulatory physiology, pathophysiology and peripheral vascular disease.
