Physiology of Circulation, Kidney and Lung

Research focus

Our research theme studies physiological, pathophysiological and diagnostic aspects of the heart, vasculature, kidney and lung, as well as interactions between these organ systems.

The overall aims of our research theme are to develop novel insights in physiology, new treatment strategies and non-invasive diagnostics. To pursue these aims, our research embraces multiple methods allowing us to perform clinical trials and work with humans and animals in vivo through to the investigating of individual cells.

Our theme utilizes the considerable skill sets of its members and our tradition for collaboration to ensure a diverse and innovative approach to our research.
