The most recent multinational study of cardiovascular disease has received a $ 38 million grant to help researchers investigate the biology of aging.
A six-year grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute for Heart Studies in Framingham was announced Tuesday.
Boston University, which has been running the 71-year-old study since 1971, said the grant would be used to test liver fat, platelet function, arterial stiffness, large cardiovascular and thousands of proteins in the blood.
The funding also allows continued maintenance of the research activities and continued analysis of the data.
The study, which dates back to 1948, is responsible for many breakthroughs, including the contribution of smoking to the risk of heart disease, the benefit of physical activity and the risk of obesity.
