Systemic Diseases and Ageing
The Systemic Diseases and Ageing group studies the impact and treatment of systemic diseases (i.e. diseases affecting more than one organ) from the clinical and epidemiological perspective.
Its area of experience includes the fields of systemic autoimmune diseases (including venous thromboembolic disease), ageing (chronic heart failure, hip wear and breakage), venous thromboembolism and rare diseases. Regarding rare diseases, this group also studies these diseases from the basic research, with cellular and animal models, to the clinical research, as a model of translational medicine.
