Medical research doesn’t usually result in immediate cures; instead, the process is incremental and often slow. But over a period of years, progress can be impressive. Consider, for example, the 56% reduction in death from heart disease since 1950 due to a combination of drugs to control blood pressure and cholesterol, dietary interventions, reductions in smoking, and improved surgical treatments. All of these advances began with basic research into the causes of heart disease and the best ways to prevent or reverse their deadly effects. Indeed, without basic research all medical advances would come to a grinding halt.
The VICB serves as a highly efficient incubator of basic medical research at Vanderbilt. Examples of projects currently being pursued by VICB investigators are:
VICB researchers such as these have been highly successful in obtaining funding for their research. However, maintaining the environment that supports their work also requires money that cannot easily be obtained through typical grant applications. Your support will help to keep the VICB strong, so that these and other vital research programs will continue to thrive.
