Vincent Aengevaeren obtained additional funding of 20.000 euro from the W.M. de Hoop Stichting for 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. Vincent previously received a Dekker grant (€145K) from the Dutch Heart Foundation for this project, but this additional funding allows for additional CT-scans. 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.
Vincent Aengevaeren is member of theme Vascular damage.
