Heart disease is one of the most common conditions in the world
There is no other medical field where innovations go so fast and show so much results. In the past 30 years, the average life expectancy has increased by 7.5 years. Developments in cardiology contribute 4.5 years to this.
In the past decades our team has significantly contributed to better prevention and treatment of several heart diseases, including coronary heart disease, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation.
Our research ranges from basic and translational science to multicenter clinical trials. Research at UMCG Cardiology is focused in four different areas. Find out about the on going projects in each area.
