Framingham Heart Study
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) sponsored Framingham Heart Study (FHS), founded in 1948, has yielded seminal findings relevant to the development of cardiovascular disease in a population-based cohort of families in Framingham, MA. Drs. Emelia Benjamin and Vasan Ramachandran are Framingham investigators, as well as members of the Section of Cardiology at BU. Numerous publications with other members of the BU Cardiology faculty, other BUMC investigators, as well as colleagues outside of the BU community have been the result of fruitful collaborative efforts. Please see the FHS link for more details. BU Fellows, during their training, may chose to work with FHS as part of their research experience.
