Mission: To reduce death and disability from cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other related health disorders The Baker Heart and Diabetes Institute measures its performance, and seeks to be judged by its stakeholders and peers, on the contribution it is able to make in three areas: Scholarly achievement measured by publication number and impact, citation rates, and contribution to academic discourse which effect paradigm shifts in the discipline. Translation of research output in clinical, commercial and policy environments where new knowledge generated through the Institute's research activity have an impact on the lives of people with, or at risk, of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Contributions to clinical service delivery and preventive health initiatives, through the successful operation of its clinics and clinical service partnerships, and the development and management of preventive health programs which contribute to the public understanding of how to prevent and manage disease.

Vision: To leverage these new capabilities, we need to draw on our expertise across a range of areas including basic science, clinical research and public health. We need to understand the mechanisms and potential drivers of disease, to test these hypotheses in patients and to understand the clinical needs. We also need to understand how the environment interacts with our genes and the role of lifestyle. That’s why the Institute is ideally placed to harness this new technology, to personalise medicine and to help people live healthier for longer.
