Our goal is to use state-of-the-art scientific approaches to understand the molecular basis of the development, function and disease of the heart, the vascular system and the lung but also of other organ systems. The results of our knowledge-driven basic research provide the bases for innovative, diagnostic and therapeutic approaches in medicine. To this end, we collaborate with other scientists in various national and international research consortia. Our currently about 400 employees are recruited from all over the world, thus creating an inspiring international working atmosphere.
