About me

  • Adjunct Professor of Cardiology at the Department of Clinical Sciences,
    Danderyd Hospital, as of 1 May 2022.
    Primary position: Consultant at Danderyd Hospital.


  • Hans Persson is a cardiologist and researches heart failure. Over the past
    decade, his work has focused largely on improving the organisation and
    logistics of heart failure care and research, including the introduction of
    heart failure clinics. He headed up 4D Hjärtsvikt, a joint KI-Region
    Stockholm project that greatly improved heart failure care in the region and
    changed the national heart failure care programme.
    Hans Persson is particularly interested in the diastolic form of heart
    failure – heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, HFpEF, – which
    affects many more women than men and is less researched. He has helped to
    improve diagnosis and risk assessment in this field. He will now be
    researching the biological mechanisms of HFpEF in order to identify possible
    new drug targets. This work will be done in collaboration with SciLifeLab,
    amongst other facilities, and be based on a new biobank that he has helped to
    set up.
