In the integrated project EUGeneHeart and follow-up projects signaling pathways in the heart muscle cell are explored with the aim to develop new drugs and diagnostics to treat and prevent heart diseases, particularly heart failure. In the integrated project EUTrigTreat and follow-up projects new therapeutic rationales and diagnostic devices are developed in order to treat and prevent arrhythmias.

With the aim to develop new therapeutics against infectious diseases, new antibiotics (inhibitors of Mur-A) and therapeutics against Dengue (NS3 protease inhibitors) as well as Hepatitis C are tried to be discovered.
