Metabolism of the heart in health and disease

In this project, health-relevant features of metabolism in cardiomyocytes will be studied with metabolic modelling approaches. Many pathological conditions of the heart are known to have a metabolic component. However, while individual connections to metabolism have been studied, no systematic, comprehensive investigation of these complex connections has been carried out thus far.

This project presents an exciting opportunity to discover crucial connections between cardiomyopathies and metabolism that might improve medical treatment options.​
