Using a ‘big data’ approach, we investigate how & why mental ill-health interacts with cardiovascular disease.
Our team of world-leading experts combine data from 1.8 million Northern European volunteers, to identify the genetic, brain & body markers that are common to both conditions. These will form the basis of clinical tools for prediction, diagnosis & disease monitoring.
