Internationally collaborative basic, translational, and clinical research in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease involving two network coordinators from different continents.

The International Networks of Excellence in Cardiovascular and Neurovascular Research Program, (formerly the Transatlantic Networks of Excellence in Cardiovascular and Neurovascular Research Program) fosters outstanding and innovative scientific research by bringing together international teams of researchers with complementary expertise and resources to work together on a common thematic problem. The proposals should aim to generate new knowledge with the potential to advance the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular and/or neurovascular disease. Early career investigators play a vital role in these networks, which provide an excellent context for training and career development in cardiovascular and neurovascular research.
