About Cardiology

The Laboratory for Experimental Cardiology at Maastricht University, part of the Department of Cardiology at Maastricht UMC+ (MUMC+), conducts Cardiovascular research and teaches classes at the Medical School, University College and the Science College.

Research at the Laboratory for Experimental Cardiology is embedded in the “Cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure” cluster in the School for Cardiovascular Diseases (CARIM), where multiple principal investigators, each with a group of postdocs, PhD students and technicians do their science. The research in the fields of Inflammation, Extracellular Matrix, Gene Regulation and Electricity and Arrhythmogenesis of the heart is of high international standard and covers a broad range of fundamental mechanistic studies and aims to be translational towards clinical care.
