Heart Zone

Human heart and circulatory system | Wikimedia

The heart and the circulatory system do an incredible job, working together tirelessly to supply every single cell in your body with oxygen and other life critical nutrients. Research looks at how they do this, from what’s happening in the cells right up to how they interact with other systems in the body. Diseases of the heart are one of the biggest risks to health we currently have so scientists need to look at what happens when the system fails, how we can help it recover, and what we can do to protect it.

Scientists in this zone might be finding the genes associated to heart disease, working in hospitals, learning about how burgers and chips clog up your arteries, growing blood vessels, or looking for ways to regenerate hearts.
