This project aims to create a new infrastructure for conducting clinical trials by establishing a cardiovascular examination and training centre. This centre will carry out the standardized and quality controlled phenotyping of probands and patients. This includes algorithms for standardized data export and analysis. Methods for phenotyping include: standardized interviews and questionnaires, anthropometry, digital ECG, echocardiography, resting and 24 h blood pressure measurement, bodyplethysmography, spiroergometry, IMT measurements, peripheral endothelial function (FMD, EndoPAT), ankle-brachial-index measurements, pulse wave measurements (Vascular Explorer). Furthermore, training facilities will be established for conductiong cardiovascular prevention studies with life-style intervention programmes e.g. exercise.
