Research Areas

The Hecker Working Group investigates the role of various signalling molecules in controlling the expression of mechanosensitive genes in vascular cells.

The Korff Working Group investigates mechanisms of (patho)physiological remodeling processes of arteries and veins.

Die Ullrich Working Group investigates, among other topics, the differentiation of stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes with particular focus on their electrophysiological properties.

The Wagner Working Group is interested in the role of the CD40/ CD154-mediated interaction between endothelial cells and leucocytes/ blood platelets in the early phase of chronic subacute inflammatory diseases.
Another focal point is the pathophysiological relevance of reactive oxygen species as signalling molecules in inflammatory remodelling processes in the vascular wall, in the early phase of arteriosclerosis and during the development of secondary complications in diabetes mellitus, respectively.

Scientists from the Division work on the development of novel DNA-based drugs, so-called decoy-oligonucleotides for the therapy of heart failure.
