Afdelingen for Hjerte- og kredsløbsforskning

Det primære formål for afdelingens forskning er at undersøge årsager, konsekvenser og behandling af hjerte- og kredsløbssygdomme. Herunder hjertets elektrofysiologi og arytmimekanismer, myocardiel iskæmi-reperfusion samt lipidmetabolisme og atherosclerose.

Forskningsgrupper

Afdelingen består af en række forskningsgrupper. Nedenfor finder du link til gruppernes forskningssite, der alle er på engelsk.
