June 2017 During the annual Symposium of the Excellence Cluster Cardio-Pulmonary System two PhD students of our institute received awards for the best posters. Julian Wagner showed that the expression of laminin isoforms is changed in cardiac endothelial cells during ageing and after acute myocardial infarction. Nicole Schlüßler is analyzing a novel lncRNA gene that is essential for murine embryonic development. see more…
