€22 million for international research into cardiovascular disease

Prof. Hans-Peter Brunner-La Rocca (Dept. of Cardiology) leads an international research project, focused on personalised prevention and treatment of cardiovascular diseases. By creating one database consisting of data from more than 1 million patients and using artificial intelligence, partners will look for new strategies to shift from a one-size-fits-all approach to personalised care.

The international public-private research consortium iCARE4CVD (individualised care from early risk of cardiovascular disease to established heart failure) has launched to better understand cardiovascular disease and optimise future prevention and treatment. The consortium is supported by the Innovative Health Initiative (IHI) brings together 33 leading international partners from civil society, academia and industry, and is lead and coordinated by Maastricht University and global healthcare company Novo Nordisk.
