Our research relates to disease modifiers and prevention of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease, including chronic kidney disease, obesity, sex hormones, as well as endothelial and anti-atherogenic factors. We study molecular mechanisms of disease and evaluate pharmacological and non-pharmacological approaches for treatment and prevention of chronic vascular disease. Since the inception of Molecular Internal Medicine 19 years ago, we have been continuously funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF).
