Our Mission & Vision

Creating a world without heart and vascular disease.
The Importance of Partnership
We partner with 100+ world-class physicians from Allina Health Minneapolis Heart Institute® to lead research that has a global impact on cardiovascular care for patients.
Because Minneapolis Heart Institute is part of Abbott Northwestern Hospital and United Hospital, we can study and offer cutting-edge treatment to a large number of patients.
Through the passion and innovation of our physician partners, we can continue to conduct cutting-edge research on a daily basis, just as Dr. Katsiyannis describes here:
