Connecting Cardiovascular Research, Patient Care & Education in Southern Alberta


The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is a joint entity of Alberta Health Services and the University of Calgary. Our more than 1,500 members include physicians, clinicians and other health professionals, researchers and trainees.


Our Initiatives

Two million Canadians have suffered cardiovascular disease or stroke. At $25 billion annually, the cost to our health care system is staggering, accounting for 10 per cent of total health care costs. The Libin Cardiovascular Institute is tackling these problems head on through world-class cardiovascular research, training and clinical care. 

The Libin Cardiovascular Institute’s four initiatives are at the heart of this work. They drive our research and ultimately enable us in our mission to improve cardiovascular outcomes for Albertans at all ages and stages of life.
