AG Koronarphysiologie

Die Arbeitsgruppe Koronarphysiologie beschäftigt sich mit den Ursachen von Brustschmerz und Luftnot bei Patienten ohne relevante Arterienverkalkung der Herzkranzgefäße. Schwerpunkt der Forschung sind Entstehung, Diagnose und Behandlung von Gefäßspasmen bzw. mikrovaskulären Funktionsstörungen sowie deren Beziehung zu anderen Gefäß- oder Herzmuskelerkrankungen. Themen für medizinische Doktorarbeiten sind jederzeit verfügbar.

AG Molekulare Bildgebung und Kardiomyopathien

Die Arbeitsgruppe Molekulare Bildgebung und Kardiomyopathien beschäftigt sich mit der Diagnose und Therapie von erworbenen sowie angeborenen Herzmuskelerkrankungen. Es werden Möglichkeiten der molekularen Bildgebung zur frühzeitigen Erfassung von Herzerkrankungen (in Form von Herzmuskelentzündungen) untersucht. Ein weiterer Schwerpunkt der Arbeitsgruppe liegt auf Herzerkrankungen bei Patienten mit genetischen Erkrankungen wie der Muskeldystrophie.
