The goal of our research is to reduce the level of cardiovascular disease by developing new diagnostic methods and treatment strategies.
About the group
We perform basic research in vascular biology with the aim to understand and solve outstanding problems in cardiovascular medicine. In particular, circulating factors which are components of the coagulation and fibrinolysis system are being investigated.
This research is relevant for diseases such as atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, stroke and thrombosis. The mechanisms involved are also relevant for allied processes such as tissue repair, fibrosis, host defense, inflammation and cancer.
