UNC McAllister Heart Institute - UNC School of Medicine

UNC McAllister Heart Institute (MHI)

Mission Statement

Jenna Regan HeartThe mission of the UNC McAllister Heart Institute is to provide a world class environment for basic, preclinical, and applied cardiovascular research. Discoveries made by our investigators may provide new diagnostic tools and therapies that can be used to advance the care of patients with diseases of the Heart, Blood, and Circulation.

Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death and disability in the state of North Carolina and in the United States as a whole. The spectrum of cardiovascular diseases is enormous. At one extreme, there are strictly genetic diseases such as sickle cell anemia and coagulation disorders that often severely affect otherwise healthy young individuals. At the other extreme lie common afflictions such as hypertension and atherosclerosis that afflict over half of our population and that lead to heart attacks and strokes. Importantly, the genetic and environmental components that contribute to heart disease are still not well understood.

The UNC McAllister Heart Institute is home to many talented investigators who study various aspects of cardiovascular disease. The Institute provides a unique opportunity for basic scientists to interact with clinicians. These interactions often result in innovative research projects that provide benefits to patients now and in the future.

The goals of this multidisciplinary Institute are to:

  • Translate research discoveries into clinical practice
  • Improve the medical care of patients with cardiovascular disease
  • Become an internationally recognized center for research in cardiovascular diseases
  • Provide a home for interactions between basic science and clinical departments to facilitate cardiovascular research
  • Educate the university and local communities about advances and emerging issues in cardiovascular research
  • Service the cardiovascular research community at UNC with an efficient and organized administrative staff
  • Develop training programs and career development tracks to instruct the next generation of cardiovascular scientists

Hugh A. "Chip" McAllister Jr.

McAllister SpeechHugh A. "Chip" McAllister Jr., MD '66 donated the largest-ever single donation to the UNC School Of Medicine to fund cardiovascular research.  "We hope to turn this into one of the nations leading centers for cardiovascular research," Dr. McAllister said during a recent trip to Chapel Hill.  "The philosophy here is not bricks and mortar, but to get young scientists, the best in the country, to come here."

He chose UNC for several reasons..."the leadership you have in the Department of Medicine Cardiology is perfectly set to do this type of research and bring benefit to the American people and the people of the State of North Carolina.  They have an openess here that you don't find in many places, where there's interdisciplinary interaction between pathology, pharmacology, physiology, biochemistry and genetics.  All of this is going to come together, I think, to bring very exciting changes in the morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular disease".
