Rediscovering The Heart - S1: Rediscovering The Heart Interstitial
At the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, scientists are on the cutting-edge of cardiovascular research.
Cardiovascular disease is one of the major causes of death worldwide and in Singapore, it accounts for more than a fifth of all deaths here. And the greatest cause for concern is that patients are getting younger. Heart disease is no longer an old-people problem and there is urgent need for new medicines and treatments. At the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, doctors and scientists are on the cutting-edge of cardiovascular research, finding innovative ways to track disease risks and progression, treat heart diseases and other associated health problems, as well as reverse the progression of the disease. This series looks at the ground-breaking work being done and will follow some of the individual researchers who are striving to find answers that will not only benefit Singapore but the world.
