Combatting the CardioRenal Syndrome: towards an integrative Analysis reduce cardiovascular burden in chronic kidney disease


Successfully combatting a complex disease requires multi-disciplinary and methodically well-trained scientists. CaReSyAn strives to accomplish exactly this: we will train scientists to successfully integrate proteomics, clinical, experimental and bioinformatical analyses to enhance the understanding, diagnosis and therapy of the cardiorenal syndrome (CRS). CRS comprises disorders of the heart, vessels and kidneys, including the increased development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). With approx. 45 percent of all deaths in CKD patients caused by CVD, the socio-economic burden of CRS is extremely high.
