Mainz University Medical Center receives further DFG funding for cardiovascular research
Date:1/29/2013

The German Research Foundation (DFG) has again approved funding for the Department of Internal Medicine II of the Mainz University Medical Center to promote cardiovascular research for the second time within only a few weeks. The aim of the project currently being sponsored is to investigate the relationships between free radicals and disorders of the cardiovascular system. The team, led by biologist Dr. Swenja Krller-Schn and PD Dr. Eberhard Schulz, senior physician at the Department of Internal Medicine II of the Mainz University Medical Center, has a particular interest in how specific enzyme systems regulate vascular function. These significantly influence the formation of free radicals, inflammatory reactions, and vascularization. It is thus hoped that the results of this theoretical research will make it possible to diagnose vascular diseases at an even earlier stage and to intervene with targeted treatment to prevent related complications, such as myocardial infarction. The researchers intend to spend the approximately EUR 210,000 funding granted over the next two years on human resources and consumables.

In this project, the research team will be studying to what extent molecules that control the energy consumption of cells also have a long-term effect on vascular function. "This correlation seems to make sense because when energy reserves decrease, cells need to be supplied with substrates in the blood stream and, for this purpose, adequate dilation of the blood vessels is necessary. However, the correlations between the mechanisms involved in this process have still not been sufficiently explained," stated Krller-Schn and Schulz.

The successful acquisition of third-party funds is also attributable to the strategy adopted by the University Medical Center, namely that of establishing specialized research units. Within this context, the research team led by Dr. Swenja Krller-Schn and PD Dr. Eberhard Schulz has managed to form partnersh
