In this thesis we investigate the molecular composition of atherosclerosis, one of the main causes of stroke, to gain insight into the chances of patients of experiencing a stroke and to treat these patients in a more targeted fashion. We found a number of molecules associated with plaque components that have been linked to elevated stroke risk, also we identified their photoacoustic spectra.
