The DCVA aims to strengthen cardiovascular research by increasing accessibility and reusability of existing and new data. We facilitate a national research infrastructure for cardiovascular science, allowing scientists to fully focus on excellent research to improve patient care.
Sustainable (re)use of data
We will collect and use data from individuals to accelerate and improve health research.
We will create a national registration for clinical studies in cooperation with the Dutch Heart Registration (NHR).
We will connect patients to our platform and make them available for research.
Availability of (human) tissue for research
We will facilitates the development of a biobank where tissues are stored that will be available for cardiovascular researchers.
