Biomarkers of Clinical Relevance – The ABC Risk Scores in Cardiovascular Diseases


Invitation to Symposium on the ABC study

In the ABC Risk Score project new tools for precision medicine in cardiovascular diseases have been developed. At this half-day symposium achievements obtained within the project will be presented and discussed. The ABC Risk Score project has been financed for 5 years by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research.
