Coronary disease represents the leading cause of death in Germany. Especially patients who have suffered from an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), for example a heart attack, are at high risk. Instead of taking classical risk factors such as dyslipidemia, hypertension and smoking into account, John Deanfield proposes to have a closer look at the individual disease progression. By using computational modelling, Deanfield's research project at Berlin Institute of Health focuses on developing an advanced integrated algorithm of individual personalised risk and disease pathway prediction, intending to create a digital prototype for treatment in ACS. John Deanfield is Professor of Cardiology at University College London and Yale University.
