CBSET's approach to the study of novel CAD therapies

CBSET was founded with a strong core competence in coronary artery disease (CAD) models for the evaluation of interventional endovascular therapies and has continued to support innovation in this field. CBSET's scientists have published on novel models and imaging methods for evaluating CAD treatments, as well as immunohistochemistry and computational models for technology differentiation and optimization.

This excellence was recognized and partially supported by a European Union Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.
