Malcolm Legget - Multi Ethnic New Zealand Study of Acute Coronary Syndromes (MENZACS)
Posted by Green Lane Research and Educational Fund
Malcolm was awarded $49,104 to conduct a Multi Ethnic New Zealand Study of Acute Coronary Syndromes (MENZACS).
The aim of the study is to explore the influence of genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors on the prevalence and expression of coronary artery disease in a New Zealanders.
The insights gained from the study will help refine screening strategies in high risk subgroups of the population, identify new pathways involved that may lead to new treatments, and potentially improve our ability to prevent the number one cause of premature death and disability in New Zealand coronary artery disease.
