Introducing Featured Open Lectures

This is a new initiative from the Society to highlight our online educational platform EAS ACADEMY. Every other month we select one interesting lecture from a recent course or Congress and make it available for free, to members and non-members.

Open Lecture July-August 2018

This presentation was given as the Anitschkow Lecture at the EAS Congress in Lisbon, 2018, by Professor Anne Tybjaerg Hansen, Rigshospitalet, Copenhagen University Hospital, Denmark. In her talk she will take you on an exciting trip through the history of genetics of dyslipidemia and CVD from the “ugly duckling” beginning to the nowadays “beautiful swan” genetic era.

Professor Tybjærg-Hansen is a world-wide recognized leader in the field of atherosclerosis-related human genetics research and in the evaluation of risks to population health. Her creative and groundbreaking work has influenced, and continues to have significant impact on, Atherosclerosis Societies in Europe in their efforts to understand the mechanisms of atherosclerosis. She initiated the genetic part of the Copenhagen City Heart Study and finalized the collection and thorough analysis of data obtained in this exemplary study. She has envisioned and demonstrated that this biobank is of major importance for the identification of the genetic contribution to lipid metabolism, atherosclerosis, and cardiovascular disease. In fact, Professor Tybjærg-Hansen is a pioneer in using genetics to understand the importance of individual genes for the development of diseases in general. Her approach has been highly original, novel, and continues to be performed at an outstanding level.

Free access to the lecture will be open until August 31.
