a Healthy Heart?
This is what we are attempting to discover, among other things, via this research. We want to connect the dots and uncover the cartography of the heart in relation to a person’s environment and lifestyle to prevent risks related to heart problems.
Understand the uniqueness of each beating heart
Our research is the first in the world to collect, capture and provide the research community with a valuable collection of data and information. Our 10-year study will allow us to collect data on healthy volunteers, participants with cardiovascular risk factors and with known cardiovascular disease. Our efforts will allow us to personalize cardiovascular health in the future and tailor treatments to the unique combination of your genetic, microbiomic, environmental, and other factors that predispose to heart disease.
What we collect
- You are between 35 and 79 years old?
- You are in good health or you present cardiovascular risk factors (e.g., smoking) or you suffer from cardiovascular disease?
- Do you want to make a difference and advance research on the heart?

Have a heart?
Help us solve this scientific riddle.
Our program will help many people in the future. With the information collected, we will be able to understand what is a healthy heart, why some people develop heart disease when they appear otherwise healthy, and how we can identify the initial signs of heart disease, before they occur.
Thanks to your donations, we will be able to continue our research, broaden our expertise and contribute to the advancement and knowledge of the research community.
