Research Topic A
Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number one cause of death in patients with diabetes. Therefore, CVD in these patients will impose a growing burden in terms of morbidity and mortality. Novel pathways responsible for the vascular disease in these patients are ongoing investigation. The research project will have the general objective to elucidate the mechanisms that drive cardiovascular risk in diabetetics and on the biological process that promote myocardial and vascular damage in diabetes.
