What is REGICOR?

REGICOR began with the Girona Heart Registry (Registre GIroní del COR) in 1978 and now brings together more than 50 researchers from two Barcelona research groups, EGEC and CARIN, of the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute (IMIM), from the Cardiology Services unit at Josep Trueta Hospital and the Primary Care Research Unit in Girona. The research focus is the population distribution of ischemic heart disease and associated risk factors, and improved prevention tools and strategies.
