Science and research

The Schüchtermann-Klinik plays an active role in the further scientific development of the medical specialty departments being part of our cardiac centre. The objective of our research activities is to provide our patients with access to new innovative treatment methods and medicaments at an early stage. Research activities in the Schüchtermann-Klinik focus on the following subjects:

  • fundamental research into the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases
  • development and validation of innovative biotechnological techniques for the diagnosis and therapy of cardiovascular diseases
  • fundamental research into the pathophysiological mechanisms in case of acute heart attack
