Vincent Aengevaeren obtained a Dekker grant (140k euro) of the Dutch Heart Foundation. This competitive grant allows Vincent to perform his project titled ‘Measuring Athletes Risk of Cardiovascular Events: a follow-up study (MARC-II)’.
In this project he studies the effect of exercise on coronary atherosclerosis by performing cardiac CT-scans in male and female athletes. He aims to answer the question why very active individuals have more coronary atherosclerosis, how their plaques differ from less active individuals, and what the risk associated with coronary atherosclerosis is in these athletes. For part of this project he will visit the world-leading group in Sports Cardiology of prof. Sharma in London, to set-up a collaboration.
