Research Group of Prof. Norbert Gerdes

Main Research Topics

  • The immune system in cardiovascular biology
  • Adaptive immunity, T cells and their subsets in atherosclerosis and myocardial infarction
  • Function of co-stimulatory molecules in cardiovascular diseases and other inflammatory conditions
  • Platelets as participants of immune mechanisms

Current Projects

  • Role of T cells in ischemia/reperfusion injury
  • Function of co-stimulatory molecules (e.g. CD40/CD40L, CD27/CD70) in acute myocardial infarction
  • Cell type-specific role of CD40/CD40L in atherosclerosis
  • Stroke-induced cardiovascular dysfunction
