Konstantinos Stellos received ERC start up grant

Professor Stellos received 1.5 Mio funding of the European Research Council to study the regulation and function of RNA modifications in cardiovascular disease. This is the third ERC start up grant that was granted to members of the Institute for Cardiovascular...
lncRNA HypERlnc Regulates Pericyte Function

lncRNA HypERlnc Regulates Pericyte Function

Pericytes are mural cells that contribute to vessel maturation and control endothelial barrier function. Despite their pivotal role in the vascular system, knowledge is sparse on molecular regulatory mechanisms of pericyte cell biology. Here, we show for the first...

New hope for slow-healing wounds

New hope for slow-healing wounds

Light-inducible microRNA inhibitors used for the first time as local therapeutic agents The research groups led by Alexander Heckel and Stefanie Dimmeler have developed antimiRs that can be activated very effectively over a limited local area by light. To this...
