The research at the Institute for Physiology and Pathophysiology is focussed on the mechanisms of medial vascular calcification. This calcification is a common occurrence during aging and dramatically accelerated during diabetes mellitus and chronic kidney disease.
The vascular calcification is associated with a dramatic increase in cardiovascular mortality, but no treatment is currently available. The molecular mechanism underlying this process are incompletely understood, but may reveal new therapeutic concepts.
