RESEARCH TOPIC

I'm mainly interested in the genetics of cardiovascular diseases. Over the last ten years we have identified hundreds of risk genes for coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction by genomewide associations studies. We selected promising candidate genes and try work on these genes by anti-sense RNA techniques to use them as therapeutic targets. On a side project I'm interested in collagen-6 myopathy and developing a RNA-based therapy. This project is driven by my own Col6A2 mutation leading to an intermediate form of collagen-6 myopathy.
