The next generation in research
Within the CHFC there are not only the four departments but also several Junior groups, either financed by the German Ministry of Research and Education (BMBF) or the Interdisciplinary Centre for Clinical Research (IZKF) of the University Wurzburg. The funding period is restricted to five years. The research interest of the Junior Groups is focused within the three main project areas of the CHFC: Myocardium, heart and brain, metabolism and other organs. Their work is also supported by the infrastructure of the CHFC and its four departments as well as by the department of cardiology (Medizinische Klinik I) from the university clinic.
Junior Research Groups:
Up to now there are three Junior Research Groups within the CHFC:
- Gustavo Ramos leading the laboratory for immunocardiology
- Clément Cochain is investigating the function of macrophages in myocardial repair and regeneration
- Jan Dudeks Junior Research Group is investigating mitochondrial dysfunction in cardiomyopathies.
