Jan Borén, MD, PhD

Principal Investigator

Jan Borén is chair of the Department of Molecular and Clinical Medicine, Institute of Medicine at the Sahlgrenska Academy; director of the strategic research center Sahlgrenska Center for Cardiovascular and Metabolic Research (CMR), and consultant physician at the Department of Clinical Chemistry at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital.

Professor Borén’s long-term interests are to define the mechanisms that regulate secretion and metabolism of atherogenic lipoproteins and clarify their atherogenicity; to develop strategies to prevent retention of atherogenic lipoproteins and identity novel biomarkers for cardiovascular disease; and to elucidate how cardiac uptake of lipoproteins induces lipotoxicity and insulin resistance. His research program is translational and involves both in vitro and in vivo studies, including pathophysiological studies based on vascular and myocardial cells, biopsies and mouse models, and kinetic studies in carefully phenotyped human volunteers.

Professor Borén has received several awards including:

  • The Irvine H. Page Atherosclerosis Research Awards for Young Investigators, American Heart Association, 70th Scientific Sessions (1997)
  • The Göran Gustafsson Prize in Medicine from the Royal Academy of Sciences (2004).
