Chemical Exposure and Cardiovascular Disease

Voksenkollveien 60, 0790 Oslo, Norge

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with several risk factors. This course will mainly focus on chemical exposure, particles and combination exposures in the working environment, while also paying attention to other risk factors connected with life style and environment. Possible disease mechanisms will be discussed, in addition to methods used in research in the field.
