Welcome to NORCOR

Interdisciplinary cardiovascular disease prevention

Norwegian cardiovascular prevention research group

Approximately twenty percent of the population is currently affected by cardiovascular disease or is at high risk of developing it. Globally, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are the leading causes of illness, death, and reduced quality of life, a trend also seen in Norway. NORCOR is an interdisciplinary research group that studies lifestyle, behavior, drug treatment and adherence, genetics, health communication, psychological stress, and sleep patterns among individuals in this demographic. Our main goal is to develop empirically-based personalized treatment plans and health monitoring startegies to assist individuals and patients in achieveving and maitaining optimal health and quality of life.
