Cardiovascular Studies in Vertebrates
The research group Cardiovascular Studies in Vertebrates centers its studies on morphology and embryonic development of the cardiovascular system in vertebrates, as well as aetiology and pathophysiology of diverse cardiovascular diseases. The group is composed of biologists and physicians to form an interdisciplinary group with a profound experience in research and teaching. Academic work integrates various collaborations with private and public centers.
- Morphology and embryonic development of the cardiac outflow tract in vertebrates.
- Morphology and embryonic development of the cardiac valves in vertebrates.
- Morphology and morphogenesis of congenital anomalies of semilunar cardiac valves and coronary arteries in mammals.
- Cardiac cartilage.
- Arteriogenesis. Development of collateral arteries in animal models.
- Studies on atherogenesis in animal models.
- Progression of atherosclerosis in animal models with BAV.
- Aquarium for marine and freshwater species.
- Laboratory equipped for necropsies, histomorphology and inmunohistochemistry.
- Advice, training and research about the research topics.
