3. Therapeutic angiogenesis that opens avenues for novel treatment of heart disease meant to improve cardiac oxygenation and reduce heart failure (angiogenesis is the science that studies the formation of new vessels which would improve cardiac blood perfusion).

Each of the three areas has the potential for the development of new diagnostic and therapeutic strategies that will provide permanent benefits for patients.
