The long term interest of the Eriksson group is to study the etiology and pathophysiological mechanisms underlying atherosclerosis, arterial thrombosis and aneurysm formation.

Lars Maegdefessel

Lars Maegdefessel’s group performs translational studies in atherosclerosis research, focussing on the therapeutic and biomarker potential of non-codingRNAs (e.g., microRNAs and lncRNAs) and other epigenetic modulators in vascular disease and its underlying (patho-) mechanisms.
