Functieomschrijving

Atherosclerosis is a highly frequent vascular condition that hugely impacts the health care system. Major clinical events caused by atherosclerosis include myocardial infarction and stroke, both top causes of global morbidity and mortality in middle-aged and elderly persons. Due to aging of the population, the global burden of atherosclerosis and thereby of its clinical consequences will continue to rise in the coming decades. Although major steps in the field of atherosclerosis have been made, many aspects about the disease remain unknown, specifically those pertaining to its natural course and differences between men and women. The candidate will further investigate these aspects of the disease using population-based imaging data. A successful candidate will have an interest in population-based studies and imaging of atherosclerosis.
