My current research interests focus on 1) imaging of molecular processes during the healing phase after myocardial infarction, 2) imaging of heart transplant rejection, and 3) imaging of inflammation in atherosclerotic plaques. Imaging targets are enzymes, innate immune cells and molecular players with a central role in cardiovascular disease. We use the entire spectrum of modalities, including MRI, nuclear and optical imaging techniques. Multimodal imaging, as well as hybrid approaches to fuse molecular data with anatomical information are aspects of particular interest. These technologies are embedded in a biologically driven research program that aims at systematic understanding of inflammation and repair at a basic level while keeping a rigorous translational perspective.
