Cardiovascular Epidemiology – Karin Leander research group

Our research is in the field of cardiovascular epidemiology, with a general aim to increase knowledge of cardiovascular risk factors to improve the scientific basis for primary and secondary prevention in women and men. We study cardiometabolic-related factors such as low-grade inflammation, dyslipidemia, hypertension and diabetes and evaluate the importance of lifestyle factors, such as dietary habits, for cardiovascular health. Women-specific risk factors are given special focus.
