Aging is the most important risk factor for the most common chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer and dementia. In order to prevent age-related diseases we need to measure the aging process itself.
The project is a collaboration with Fürst, the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, and Oslo University Hospital Rikshospitalet.
COVID-19 is an unpredictable disease with a high hospitalization rate and a high mortality rate. We aim to develop a blood test that can be used by clinicians to predict risk of severe disease in COVID-19 and to guide therapy for their patients.
The project is a collaboration between the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, Bærum hospital Vestre Viken and Oslo University Hospital.
