Saha Aortic Center

The Saha Aortic Center, established by a gift from the Saha Foundation, is housed in the Biomedical Biological Sciences Research Building on Limestone Avenue across from the Kentucky Clinic.

The University of Kentucky (UK) is home to one of the world's largest groups of basic scientists conducting research on aortic disease. The center promotes research and education to advance clinical care for diseases of the aorta, the largest blood vessel in the body. 

By facilitating collaboration among researchers and physicians, the Aortic Center for Research will position UK to be a premier global center for the research and treatment of people with aortic disease.
