According to the World Health Organization cardiovascular disease is worldwide the main cause of death in both men and women. With the current aging population and rise in cardiovascular risk factors, this is not likely to change without a collective effort. To address this challenge the strategic program Circulatory Health creates scientific and societal value by connecting cardiovascular researchers, clinicians and teachers into an internationally recognized UMC Utrecht Circulatory Health Research Center (CHRC). The CHRC encompasses a wide range of activities in clinical, translational and basic research with translation to the clinic and cardiovascular education.
