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 five working groups and one project team concentrate on various research areas within this field.
Scientists of the division are also integrated in a number of local and national research centers and networks:
- DZHK - Deutsches Zentrum für Herz-Kreislauf-Forschung e.V.
(German Centre for Cardiovascular Research)
- SFB/TR 23 "Vascular Differentiation and Remodeling"
- DFG International Research Training Group 1874 "Diabetic Microvascular Complications"
- Marie Curie Initial Training Networks "Small Artery Remodelling, SmArteR"
