Welcome to the CoLaus study website

You will find here information on the CoLaus | PsyCoLaus study that started in Lausanne (Switzerland) in 2003. The main goals of this study are to obtain information on the epidemiology and genetic determinants of cardiovascular risk factors and diseases as well as mental health in the adult population of Lausanne.

Over 6'000 subjects have participated from 2003 to 2006 to the baseline assessment, and in 2009 we started our first follow-up including the entire cohort. Actually, more than 5'050 subjects have been already investigated in this follow-up.

You will find in these pages a description of the different sub studies.

For Reseachers

The investigators of CoLaus | PsyCoLaus welcome collaboration with other research groups. Collaboration helps to improve our knowledge of cardiovascular diseases and mental disorders, in terms of epidemiology, pathophysiology and genetics. Information to establish a collaboration are available here.
