Cardiovascular Research Foundation

Improving Cardiovascular Health through Innovation

The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) strives to improve the quality of life for patients with cardiovascular disease. Our goal is to advance the development and use of safe and effective minimally invasive cardiovascular treatments.

In addition to its world-renowned Core Labs, and the many ground-breaking studies and trials conducted under the Foundation's auspices each year, through its Data Coordinating and Analysis Center, CRF maintains a vast database of clinical inquiry and outcomes. This important database has been created to track the real-world, long-term effectiveness of new treatment models.

CRF's dedication to research and education is demonstrated at the annual Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) symposium where CRF's distinguished faculty joins forces with more than 600 of the world's leading cardiologists to teach, share and discuss the latest techniques and developments in the field with over 11,000 symposium participants from across the globe. Where once it took years for such theories and practices to achieve currency in the medical community, TCT now ensures the timely dissemination of this critical body of research and therapeutic practice.

CRF designs and sponsors numerous live educational meetings, workshops, symposia, and expert panels. Clinical training sessions provide hands-on training in advanced interventional therapeutics such as controversies in interventional cardiology.

CRF investigates early-stage technologies. We consult for new device and drug therapies, develop unique experimental models, and offer a full range of histopathology services and advanced cardiac imaging.  With its Data Coordinating and Analysis Center and Core Analysis Laboratories, CRF evaluates promising new therapies by designing and implementing all phases of human clinical trials.  Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), CRF educates medical professionals and the public to improve patient outcomes and quality of life. CRF develops numerous symposia, workshops, and meetings throughout the year.
