The Cardiovascular Research Centre (CVRC)

Cardiovascular diseases such as arrhythmias, myocardial infarction and heart failure are the most common cause of death in the industrialised Western world and the cost for the society and the health care system to treat cardiovascular diseases is tremendous. It is of main importance to strengthen research activities to identify new mechanisms, risk factors and new target principles for more effective diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
