Research group of Pharmacological Nitric Oxide Research

Our group focuses on the understanding of nitric oxide (NO) signaling in health and disease with emphasis on cardiovascular and metabolic regulation. We are studying novel means of enhancing a dysregulated endogenous NO formation and bioactivity with the ultimate goal of finding novel strategies for prevention and therapy of diseases such as myocardial infarction, stroke and diabetes.
