The field of our research is molecular medicine of cardiac ischemia/reperfusion (I/R) injury (ischemic heart disease, myocardial infarction), endogenous and exogenous cardioprotection against cardiac I/R, the impact of comorbidities (ageing, diabetes, hypertension) and comedications (anthracyclines) on I/R injury and cardioprotection.


  • Animal models of cardiac injury, isolated rat heart, in vivo models

  • Western blotting, RT-PCR

  • Immunohistochemistry
