Our research group specializes in molecular and basic science models of clinically relevant topics. Our team is interested, for instance, in developing methods to predict and prevent recurrence of stenotic lesions after catheter interventions.

We have previously evaluated modifications of thrombectomy devices, stents and balloons delivering drugs to the vessel wall, and we have created new methods of ultrasound analysis in vascular medicine.

We are focusing our science momentarily on biocompatibility studies of novel biodegradable and resorbable materials such as biopolymers (i.e. PGLA) or trace elements such as magnesium or zinc potentially useful for the manufacture of vascular stents or stent grafts.

Our research is funded by grants from the BMBF (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung), Germany. We are constantly looking for new, enthusiastic doctorates and postgraduate students eager to learn basic sciences from “bench to bedside”.

A “core” research team of 2 lab managers is installed at our laboratory to ensure optimal services in developing technical skills of its team members. A variety of standard basic science operations such cell cultures, fluorescence microscopy, Western blot and PCR - just to name some - can be learned at our laboratory.

Please inform yourself about us from previous doctorates (alumni). The group leader is proud of having accomplished a successful guidance of so many doctorates to their PhD degrees (Dr. med, Dr. rer. nat)

Discover the world of science. We look forward to working with you!
