Cardiovascular disease is, together with cancer, a leading cause of death in the Western world. In the Netherlands, more than 100 people die every day due to cardiovascular disease. While patient outcome following acute cardiovascular disease has improved tremendously in the last decades, patients suffer more and more from the burden of chronic diseases like diabetes, thrombosis or heart failure. To improve patient outcome, more scientific research focusing on prevention, pathogenesis, diagnosis and therapy is needed. With your Master’s degree you may contribute to further improvement of health care for these patients.
