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.

The council advances and coordinates research, addresses prevention, improves methods for diagnosis and treatment, and works actively with other organizations concerned with these issues. The council disseminates reliable information related to these fields through its annual conference, many awards and lectures, and the AHA's journal, Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis, and Vascular Biology.
