Our Mission

Discovering the root causes of heart and brain disease, determining how these organs communicate with each other, and developing the treatments of tomorrow. 

Our Vision 

Our discoveries will propel life-changing new approaches to the prevention and treatment of heart and brain diseases. 

Enhancing the Michigan Medicine Research Community 

Clinical and epidemiological studies demonstrate a strong link between diseases of the heart and the brain. Many within the U-M research community are on the forefront of research examining the connection between these two critical organs.

The newly formed Institute for Heart and Brain Health (IHBH) will bring current and new U-M researchers together to unravel the biological mechanisms that the heart and brain have in common, as well as how these organs signal to each other and impact clinical outcomes.
