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.

Circulation podcast

The American Heart Association's journal Circulation provides podcasts of recently published research articles in the field of cardiovascular medicine. The podcasts are intended for a general audience and provide a brief overview of the study's main findings and their potential implications for clinical practice. They also include interviews with the study's authors and other experts to provide additional context and perspective on the research. In the following podcast, a study of our TRR259 members was discussed.

TRR259 members at the AHA 2022

The Annual Meeting of the Scientific Sessions of the American Heart Association (AHA) was held at McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, Illinois USA from Saturday, Nov 05 through Monday, 07 Nov.
The American Heart Association (AHA) is a nonprofit organization in the United States that funds cardiovascular medical research, educates consumers on healthy living and fosters appropriate cardiac care in an effort to reduce disability and deaths caused by cardiovascular disease and stroke.
The AHA conference takes place annually. The meeting provided an invaluable educational experience and an opportunity to network with top minds in the field, as well as a global community of more than 28000 Medical and Cardiology professionals from every subspecialty.
