His current major research focus is the role of inflammation in vascular diseases such as atherosclerosis. Dr. Libby has a particular devotion to translate his basic laboratory studies to pilot and then large-scale clinical cardiovascular outcome trials. He instigated and helped to lead the large-scale CANTOS trial that provided clinical validation of the role of inflammation in atherosclerosis.
An author and lecturer on cardiovascular medicine and atherosclerosis, Dr. Libby has published extensively in top ranked medical journals. He is the Editor-in Chief for the 12th edition of Braunwald’s Heart Disease.

Florian Kronenberg is Professor and Head of the Institute of Genetic Epidemiology at the Medical University of Innsbruck, Austria.
