Welcome to the Center for Cardiovascular Research
and Development American Heart of Poland

The only center for preclinical and clinical trials in Poland.

The Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development was founded by Professor Paweł Buszman in collaboration with young physicians, students and institutions promoting and developing new technologies used in medicine.

Our Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development comprises of:

Preclinical Trials Department
Clinical Trials Department
Research Grants Department
The Silesian Center for Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging

Funds (50% of the total eligible expenditure, i.e. 36 131 750 PLN) for development our research activities and to create the Center for Cardiovascular Research and Development were acquired from Innovative Economy Operational Programme, Action 4.5. Support for investments of high importance of the economy, 4.5.2. Support for investments in the sector of modern services.

CCRD POSSESS MODERN TREATMENT AND OPERATING ROOMS, INCLUDING A HIGH-TECH HYBRID ROOM WHERE CARDIO-CARDIAC SURGERIES ARE PERFORMED, IMAGING LABORATORY EQUIPPED WITH MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING, TISSUE LABORATORY THAT ENABLES WORKS ON HEART AND VASCULAR REGENERATION AND OBTAINING BIOLOGICAL MATERIAL FOR IMPLANTS.

Due to the cutting-edge equipment and highly qualified staff including interventional cardiologists, cardiac surgeons, vascular surgeons and pathologists we conduct high-quality translational research aimed at introducing into everyday clinical practice new technologies. In our facility the latest medical discoveries have a chance for safe transfer to the operating room, where they can save patients’ lives.

We have the ability to perform a full histopathological immunohistochemical analysis due to the cooperation with prestigious histopathological facilities including Alizee Pathology and Anakat Institut für Biotechnologie Gmbh.
All research that we perform are conducted only with the approval of Local Ethical Committee. The quality of our research is guaranteed by ISO 9001 and approval of Ministry of Science and Higher Education Republic of Poland.

CCRD not only high-tech technologies,

… but also advanced training programs and internships for physicians in the diagnostics and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.

Due to cooperation with the most reputable centers in Europe, USA and Asia physicians have an opportunity for development in a professional, international environment.

In 2013 we opened The Silesian Center for Veterinary Diagnostic Imaging,

The center enables performing modern diagnostic tests on pets using magnetic resonance imaging, ultrasound and angiography. The results are described by outstanding specialists. The test results are also used to conduct our scientific purposes.
