Cardiovascular Physiology and Pathophysiology

The Institute of Cardiovascular Physiology and Pathophysiology, headed by Christian Wahl-Schott, is part of the Biomedical Center of the LMU Medical Faculty and is located in building N.C on the 2nd floor.


At the Institute of Cardiovascular Physiology and Pathophysiology, we are dedicated to performing basic research at the clinical interface. Cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction or stroke are the most common cause of morbidity and mortality in industrialized countries. Basic research in this area is therefore essential and will significantly contribute to uncover the physiological and pathophysiological processes underlying cardiovascular disease. Based on this knowledge, the development of novel promising treatment strategies can be promoted to reduce both mortality and morbidity associated with cardiovascular disease. To achieve these goals, one of our main missions is to strongly support translational medicine, which will accelerate the transfer of these new treatment strategies from bench to bedside.
