Abstract

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The number of individuals at risk of CVD complications continues to rise, making CVD preventative strategies an ongoing public health priority. Current risk-stratification approaches have limited predictive value, which poses a significant challenge in delivering preventative therapies. Therefore, finding new biomarkers for CVD is of interest and may improve the identification of individuals who would benefit most from preventative therapies. The main aim of this thesis was to identify novel approaches to risk stratification in common CVD states using circulating and imaging biomarkers. This thesis consists of four..
