TRR259 - Aortic Disease 

The TRR259 is a Collaborative Research Center funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the University Bonn, Cologne, and Düsseldorf. In a joint and multidisciplinary effort, we are investigating the molecular and cellular mechanisms of aortic disease holistically, with a particular focus on aortic valve stenosis, aortic aneurysm, and aortic dissection. Prospectively, we envision identifying novel pharmacological, interventional, and surgical targets for diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic strategies within the frame of translational and clinical studies.
