Bairey Merz Laboratory

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both women and men every year; yet until recently, women's heart disease treatment has been based on medical research performed on men. The Bairey Merz Laboratory at the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center is working to correct this gender inequality in research, as well as to educate women on how to recognize female-pattern heart disease symptoms.

The Bairey Merz Laboratory is affiliated with the Barbra Streisand Women's Heart Center, Smidt Heart Institute and the Department of Biomedical Sciences.
