About the Vascular Health Unit

At the Vascular Health Unit (VHU), our mission is to identify early markers of vascular impairment and maintain vascular health. We focus on the prevention of vascular diseases, with a specific emphasis on cardiometabolic diseases, sex differences in cardiovascular diseases, and women's health across the lifespan. Our team, led by Dr. Stella S. Daskalopoulou, is passionate about promoting vascular health and improving the lives of our patients. Our research can be divided in two big themes:

1) Arterial Stiffness, vessel hemodynamics and cardiovascular risk factors

2) Established atherosclerotic disease and identification of plaque instability in men and women
