Research Departments

Cardiac Development and Remodelling

Focus is exploring the molecular basics of heart development and cardiac diseases and to investigate cardiac regeneration and repair processes.


The department investigates basic molecular mechanisms of cellular signaling pathways. Clinical projects deal with mechanisms of pathophysio-logical processes and drug actions.

Developmental Genetics

The department is interested in the formation, function and regeneration of several vertebrate organs including the cardiovascular system (zebrafish) and lungs (mouse).

Lung Development and Remodelling

The department has a translational research back- ground and investigates genesis of lung diseases as well as lung development and regeneration.
