Translational cardiac and skeletal muscle physiology – Daniel Andersson's research group

Daniel C Andersson’s translational research group studies heart and skeletal muscle dysfunction in the context of inflammatory diseases, eg to study how rheumatic diseases affects muscle and heart function.

Our Research

The laboratory uses experimental physiology and molecular biology tools to investigate disease mechanisms. In clinical studies Daniel C Andersson investigates how inflammatory/rheumatic diseases affects the risk for heart failure. 

The studies utilize mouse models, patient materials and clinical data to better understand the disease processes of heart dysfunction in rheumatic disease.

The experimental studies are performed at FYFA in collaboration with the rheumatology clinic and the Heart and vascular theme at Karolinska University Hospital.
