Monzino's Research Activity

Monzino is dedicated to cardiovascular scientific research and integrates clinical research with basic research. Research programs are designed to facilitate transfer from laboratory study on cellular systems and animal models to new approaches to diagnosis and care for patients. Monzino’s scientific production (in terms of articles published in peer-reviewed journals) is totally focused on the cardiovascular field, from clinical and interventional cardiology to vascular surgery, with particular attention to new imaging techniques and the development of biomarkers for the identification of high-risk patients.

The results of the research are collected in an annual report and publicly presented during a dedicated meeting.
