Atherosclerosis Research Unit
The primary mission of the ARU is to help establish national public health policies and strategies for the prevention of cardiovascular disease (heart, stroke and peripheral vascular disease), the number one killer of men and women. As we move into a new century of research and discovery, reduction of atherosclerosis through alternatives to current therapy is a major focus of this center. The ARU brings together physicians and scientists from the departments of medicine, preventive medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, physiology, biochemistry and the School of Pharmacy.
