Research Interest

Cardiovascular disease remains the number one cause of death, not only in the chronic human condition (cardiac infarction heart failure, diabetes), but also in many acute traumatic hospital conditions (cardiac by-pass surgery, PTCI and acute myocardial infarction, cardiogenic shock, sepsis). Our research is directed at the understanding of the crucial cellular mechanisms underlying death/survival programs of the heart cell in these conditions, and at the development of treatments to push the cell death/survival programs into the direction of survival.
