Johan Ärnlöv appointed a Professor of Family Medicine

Starting from 1 March 2017, John Ärnlöv starts his new job as a Professor of Family Medicine at the Department of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society, Division of Family Medicine.

“I am very grateful for the opportunity to work as a Professor of Family Medicine at Karolinska Institutet and hope to contribute to important new knowledge on the development of cardiovascular diseases. An increased understanding of the complex underlying factors that lead to cardiovascular disease in the population could ultimately lead to better treatments, and an improved ability to identify individuals at increased risk”, says Johan Ärnlöv.

Johan Ärnlöv most previously comes from a job as a Professor of Medical Science at Dalarna University, and he is also active within the area of cardiovascular epidemiology at Uppsala University. His research aims, among other things, to a better understanding of the complex interplay between the kidney and the cardiovascular system.
