The CoLaus  (Cohorte Lausannoise) study

The CoLaus study is a large population based monocentric study in Lausanne (Switzerland) including over 6000 subjects. Initiated in 2003, its main goal was to obtain information on

  1. The prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors and diseases in Lausanne
  2. New genetic determinants of these conditions.

Starting in 2004, over 3600 CoLaus participants underwent an extensive psychiatric phenotypization (PsyCoLaus). This extensive phenotype should allow us to better understand the known association between cardiovascular diseases and mental health.

You will find in the next pages additional information on the various study designs.
