As part of the department of Internal Medicine/Nephrology section at MHH, we investigate regulation of vascular inflammation in uremia.

Impaired kidney function is common and markedly elevates risk of cardiovascular death.
In animal models and human blood samples, we address pathways that modulate atherosclerotic inflammation in patients with kidney disease (PMID: 26449606, 23908345). The current DFG-funded PhD project will address the role of paravascular inflammation including tertiary lymphoid tissue in plaque growth and regression employing animal experiments (organ preparation and analysis by histology including microscopy and multi-color flow cytometry) and complimentary work with human leukocytes and tissue samples.
