The 3 Pillars to Understanding Cardiovascular Disease

Part 1: Genomic Solutions to Cardiovascular Disease

Szilard Voros, MD, FACC, FSCCT, FAHA, Founder & CEO, Global Genomics Group (G3), explains his company’s goals to fill the two main gaps in treating cardiovascular disease:

1) Creating a simple blood test to diagnose cardiovascular disease

2) Creating better pharmacotherapy to prevent initial or secondary heart attacks

 

The Global Project, G3′s flagship project, has 3 pillars that are critical to understanding cardiovascular disease:

1) Imaging: Using the latest, high-end imaging technology to tell if a patient has heart disease

2) Panomics: Combining the entire range of molecular biology technologies like genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, etc.

3) Systems Biology-Driven Bioinformatics: Looking at cardiovascular disease through new and unbiased tools
