My vision is a consolidation of cardiovascular endocrinology as a cross-functional discipline which takes its starting point in innovative biochemical and molecular methods for relevant peptide systems. The work is based on biochemical methodology, experimental models for human heart disease, and final tests in clinical studies. The subject is per definition cross-functional and requires a close collaboration with basic scientists and clinicians. Overall, the target is to contribute to a new understanding of the endocrine connections between organs in human heart diseases, and of the possibilities for new diagnostic and therapeutic initiatives.
