Research groups at IEMR

We work together for a better translational approach, from basic to clinical science

Cardiomyocyte function in health and disease

Our research is aimed at understanding abnormal cellular calcium handling, with focus on the structures and proteins that control calcium cycling.

Cellular and molecular biology of myocardial hypertrophy

We aim to develop novel therapeutic approaches and better diagnostic tools for heart failure through new knowledge about molecular mechanisms involved.

Disease mechanisms of heart failure

The aim of our group is to develop new advanced cardiac imaging tools, to exploit these and understand the remodelling process occurring in cardiac diseases, and search for new imaging biomarkers predicting adverse disease outcome.

Experimental Genetic Cardiology

We are a basic science cardiology group working on experimental models of heart failure, with particular focus on genetic heart failure.

Molecular mechanisms of signal transduction in heart

Our group aims to identify molecular mechanisms underlying the development of cardiac disease and to develop novel therapeutic approaches to block disease progression.

Myocardial remodeling and reverse remodeling in pressure overload

Our group is conducting experimental/translational research studying cardiac pathophysiology related to aortic stenosis and pressure overload.

The endocrine function of the heart

The main focus of our group is to study the role of hormones produced by the heart during the early stages of human cardiovascular and renal dysfunction.

Translational arrhythmology and electrophysiology

We aim to understand processes that lead to cardiac disease due to pathological electrophysiology, especially arrhythmias. Our goal is that this insight will lead to improved diagnostics and therapy for patients with cardiac disease.
