Institution Logo Utrecht University

Cardiovascular diseases are a major burden worldwide. This programme challenges you to reduce this burden by unravelling cardiovascular disease mechanisms, developing treatments and therapies, and investigate risk management and preventive strategies. 

Cardiovascular Health and Disease positions you at the cutting edge of basic and clinical science, in the cardiovascular research field. You study the cardiovascular system in the broadest sense and learn to conduct cardiovascular-related research on a basic, translational, or (pre)clinical level.

Learn to translate a disease into a scientifically sound experiment or model, and translate your experimental model back to the disease. Expand your knowledge concerning the disease or build bridges towards therapeutic leads by studying underlying mechanisms of the disease. Research projects, courses and writing assignments focus on different cardiovascular subjects, allowing you to gain experience in multiple labs. Examples of subjects covered are arrhythmias, vascular biology and disease, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, stroke, and cardiovascular risk factors and prevention.

Societal challenges are incorporated in this Master’s programme, such as diversity, health equity, development of animal-free models, prevention, and patient participation in cardiovascular research.
