Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research Group

The Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research Group is focused on using existing human health data in combination with experimental approaches to understand the relationship between various lifestyle, clinical, molecular and genetic factors in determination of risk of cardiovascular and metabolic diseases. 

Cardiovascular diseases including myocardial infarction, arrhythmia, heart failure and stroke are considered non-communicable disease as unlike communicable diseases they are not transmittable between living creatures. Currently 85.6 million people live with one form of cardiovascular disease. 

Integrating computation and laboratory-based research in cardiovascular disease

Cardiovascular diseases including myocardial infarction, arrhythmia, heart failure and stroke kill 17 million people in the world annually.

The main risk factors for these diseases include cardio-metabolic features such as abnormal blood lipids and glucose regulation and obesity leading to diabetes and hypertension.
