Major areas:

  • As part of «Health» national project for 2019–2024, the Unit develops and improves the personalized medicine approaches to CVD diagnosis and treatment strategies.
  • Analytical activities based on the epidemiological observational study «ESSE-RF». Vascular age concept and different approaches to its assessment. Sociological survey of patients' health compared to the persons with early vascular aging syndrome.
  • Organizational and methodological support for work with healthcare facilities — hypertension prevention centres.

Current work and activities

  • Organizational and methodological support for work with healthcare facilities — hypertension prevention centres. Monitoring to identify the patients with CVD risk factors in AF centres.
  • Participation in the State Assignment of the Russian Health Ministry “Mechanisms of accelerated aging of the vascular wall and targets for slowing.”
  • Analytical activities on the fulfilled state assignment of the Russian Ministry of Health the multicenter observational study “Epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases in the regions of the Russian Federation (ESSE-RF).
