What iCAPTURE Does  


iCAPTURE's vision is to be the world leader in understanding and eliminating heart, lung, and blood vessel diseases.

In recent years, researchers studying genes have come up with ways to detect variations in the genetic makeup of humans and animals. Where health science lags behind is in figuring out how particular genes are "expressed" (phenotype) and how this expression changes the structure and function of proteins and cells, ultimately leading to disease. "Phenotype" is the outward expression of an individual's unique genetic sequence, ie. hair and eye color are phenotypes, as is blood pressure.
