Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death of Canadians, and is strongly influenced by genetic factors. Integrating basic biomedical research into how specific gene variants influence the function of cardiac cells, with clinical research of patients and families with early onset CVD, will lead to important advances in translating the results of genetics research to improved care for patients and families with CVD.
