Current research focus

The major focus of the research group is on the pathophysiologic mechanisms of myocardial hypertrophy and heart failure. The group is particularly devoted to work aiming to elucidate novel autocrine/paracrine factors and signaling mechanisms involved in cardioprotection versus progression of heart failure. Currently, the research group is investigating matricellular CCN proteins and their signaling pathways in cardiac myocytes and fibroblasts, both in relation to adhesion-dependent and adhesion-independent signaling, as well as novel functions of G protein-coupled receptor kinase isoforms (GRKs) in cardiac myocytes.
