The current laboratory research of the University Clinic for Cardiovascular Engineering is focused on the following projects:
- Myocardial Tissue Engineering: Engineering of contractile bio-artificial tissues for myocardial repair
- Non-Heart Beating Donors (NHBD): Evaluation of reperfusion strategies to promote the use of hearts obtained from donors after cardiac death (DCD)
- Myocardial Recovery: Evaluation of mechanisms leading to reverse remodeling of failing hearts
- Limb Ischemia/Reperfusion: Evaluation of genetic manipulations to protect the ischemic peripheral muscle against reperfusion injuries
