European grant of four million euros to develop international research network

Large-scale research on fundamental causes of hypertension

Maastricht UMC+ and Maastricht University are leading a large-scale international study into the underlying causes of hypertension, or high blood pressure. A European grant of more than four million euros is being allocated for this research. The funding will be used to set up a collaborative network of research centres and schools with specific expertise in hypertension, that in the coming years will gather additional fundamental knowledge about the underlying causal mechanisms of hypertension.
