Main research

Cardiopulmonary diseases are responsible for a large number
of deaths worldwide, and currently recommended methods
of prevention and treatment may be outdated because of
recent changes in risk factor patterns. Göran Bergström
is chair of the Swedish CArdioPulmonary bioImage Study
(SCAPIS), which will extensively characterize 30,000 men
and women aged 50-64 years to obtain relevant information
that will improve our understanding of these diseases.

SCAPIS builds on the tradition of earlier large population studies
but offers the advantage of combining size with state-of-the-art
imaging technologies, large-scale omics, and epidemiological
analyses. A comprehensive pilot study in Gothenburg was completed
in 2012 and recruitment to the nationwide study has recently started.

Our group is also actively involved in four other major population
and biobank studies:
