Cardiology

Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death and has the highest costs for drug treatment in Sweden. For more than 15 years, the Cardiology research group has been a national centre for research and development in coronary artery disease and its complications, and in recent years stroke prevention during atrial fibrillation. The research includes register based studies, cell biology research and large clinical trials with patients and healthy controls from many countries.

We aim to improve the treatment and management for the individual patient we work in the following areas:

Disease prevalence and mechanisms of disease

  • Epidemiologic studies of registries and cohorts
  • Pathophysiology studies

Diagnosis, risk assessment and precision medicine

  • Biomarker studies
  • Studies on imaging based diagnosis

Assessment of old (and new) therapies

  • International clinical trials
  • Independent registry randomized clinical trials
  • Observational registry- and cohort studies

Implementation of new therapies

  • Observational registry studies
