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.
Areas of research
The Cardiovascular Research Centre (CVRC) research environment is a network of approximately 40 members at Örebro University and Örebro University Hospital/Region Örebro County working with basic, translational and clinical research to identify new mechanisms, risk factors and new target principles for more effective diagnosis, treatment and prevention of cardiovascular diseases. The CVRC was founded in 2014 and the overall strategy is to support internal and external academic and industrial research collaboration and to contribute to a successful and high-quality third cycle education in the field of cardiovascular research. The CVRC has been ranked as a strong research environment by external evaluators.
