Our Field of Research

Our research focuses on the molecular mechanisms underlying pathophysiological and physiological remodelling processes in the cardiovascular system, to define new therapeutic aproaches for cardiovascular disease.

 

At present four working groups and one project team concentrate on various research areas within this field.

 

Scientists of the division are also integrated in national and multinational research centers and networks:
