Cardiovascular Research Group

The Cardiovascular Research (CVR) Group  conducts physiological research with a focus on cardiovascular diseases, using intact animals, organs and isolated cells, aiming to understand the molecular mechanisms behind the disease development. The research has a translational aspect, reflected in a long-term collaboration with research groups both locally (Department of Clinical Medicine and the University Hospital of Northern Norway), nationally and internationally. The members of the CRV group are also involved in teaching physiology as part of many courses at the UiT, including the school of medicine, odontology, bachelor and master level in biomedicine, radiography-, nutrition, nursing, physiotherapy, paramedicine, dental hygiene and biomedical laboratory science
