Applied Vascular Research

The Applied Vascular Research Group aims to truly explore mechanisms of arterial and venous vascular disease by integrating molecular research, large animal models, first-in-man studies and multicenter clinical trials. One core research focus is to tackle restenosis, the Achilles heel of peripheral vascular interventions, by identifying patients at risk and developing improved treatment options. As peripheral arterial disease contributes to significant morbidity and mortality and is still severely understudied, there is an urgent need to improve both routine patient care as well as our knowledge on the mechanisms and outcomes of the disease.
