• EU-MASCARA

    EU-MASCARA is a collaborative project that aims to improve diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and prediction of cardiovascular risk by analysing a panel of biomarkers.

  • Aims of the Project

    To examine genetic, proteomic and metabolomic markers together with markers of inflammation, oxidative stress and cardiac remodelling to study their incremental diagnostic and predictive value over and above existing diagnostic and predictive algorithms.

  • Project Funding

    Funded under 7th FWP (Seventh Framework Programme)

What is EU-MASCARA?

Framework 7 and EU Logos

EU-MASCARA is a collaborative project that aims to improve diagnosis of cardiovascular diseases and prediction of cardiovascular risk by analysing a panel of biomarkers, including genetic, proteomic and metabolomic markers together with markers of inflammation, oxidative stress and cardiac remodelling. EU-MASCARA will rigorously validate biomarkers that have been proposed to be associated with cardiovascular disease and risk across different disease entities and also in independent general population samples. The most robust biomarkers will be implemented in novel biochip based assays for clinical use. The consortium has partners based in the UK, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain (total 15) and the project is due to last for 4 years.
