The KG Jebsen Center for Cardiac Research hosted by IEMR aims to identify key factors responsible for diastolic dysfunction.
The Institute for Experimental Medical Research (IEMR) is Norway’s largest institute for translational cardiac research. The Institute is a department within the University of Oslo and Oslo University Hospital, and operates within the framework of the Research strategy of the Division of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Diseases. IEMR staff holds competency from a wide range of medical and life science disciplines, and covers molecular to clinical research. Our aim is to understand cardiac biology and disease mechanisms through translational research, and develop new preventive, diagnostic, and therapeutic strategies for patients with heart disease.
