Our scientific focus is the discovery of pathomechanisms in diseases related to cardio-thoracic surgery.
We aim to gain a greater understanding in currently accepted concepts of disease genesis in humans and their therapy.
Peer-review and Internal Review Boards (ethics committee) are an obligatory part of our research progress.
We believe that the pursuit of knowledge can only be achieved through intensive interactions and clear communication within the scientific community.
