The Courtois Cardiovascular Signature Program
This ground-breaking study in understanding cardiovascular disease is mapping participants’ blood, genomes and biomes, and imaging their hearts and carotid arteries to understand how and why cardiovascular disease develops.
The Courtois Cardiovascular Signature Program funded by the MUHC Foundation, is following thousands of patients over ten years to answer questions like:
What defines a healthy heart?
Why are healthy individuals developing heart disease?
What are the early markers of cardiovascular disease?
