Dept. I (Cardiac Development & Remodeling)

Director: Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Braun


Scientific Focus


The general research concept of the department is characterized by two strategies:


  • a better understanding of processes that lead to self-renewal, proliferation of organ typical precursor cells and their coordinated differentiation during organ development and regeneration

  • development of preclinical disease models to understand and manipulate pathological tissue remodeling processes and to enable, improve and accelerate tissue regeneration in particular of the heart and skeletal muscle.
