MAUCO: Cohorte y Biobanco
Director: Catterina Ferreccio

We will study what factors influence or prevent the development of cardiovascular disease, Diabetes, Obesity, respiratory diseases, dementia and cancer in our population. For this purpose we have chosen the town of Molina, so that through the study of its adult population we can answer the questions that will allow us to then prevent these diseases throughout the country. Our goal is to survey and examine a group of 10.000 people, which will then observe for a period of 10 years. This group or cohort will be a reference on health of the adult modelor to Chile and other countries.
