They will discuss recent advances in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis and associated diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
The EAS Congress has attracted 2,000 participants from all parts of the world, and several scientists from the Sahlgrenska Academy will take part. One of these is Olov Wiklund, senior professor at the Sahlgrenska Academy, who has taken part in drawing up the first European guidelines that deal specifically with the optimal treatment for elevated blood fat levels. These guidelines will be presented at the congress.
“Publishing the new guidelines is an important event that will affect many people – physicians, scientists and patients”, says Olov Wiklund.
In addition to presentations of research results, there will be opportunities for young and old colleagues to share experiences and provide feedback on each other’s research and work, in the form of daily round-table discussions. Young scientists will have the chance to meet some of the leading researchers in the field, informally and personally. Practical aspects of treatment and diagnosis will also be discussed in several sessions at the congress.One of the younger scientists from the Sahlgrenska Academy is Fredrik Bäckhed, who will describe gut how bacteria can influence our metabolism and health. He will focus on how intestinal bacteria can influence the course of disease in metabolic-related diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and atherosclerosis.
Arranged by: The European Atherosclerosis Society in collaboration with the Institute of Medicine at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...
Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion
Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...
Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.
A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
