PhD defense at ICG

On October 6th, 2020 at 9:00 am Anja Trillhaase will defend her PhD thesis “Impact of the CAD risk locus 9p21 on vascular calcification – development of an iPSC-based model”.
We are looking forward to a great talk, vivid discussions, and an impressive Q&A session.

Of mice and men and zebrafishes. A promised land of discoveries for hypertension researchers.

An editorial commentary on our article titled “Studies in zebrafish demonstrate that CNNM2 and NT5C2 are most likely the causal genes at the blood pressure-associated locus on human chromosome 10q24.32” has been reviewed and accepted for publication in Frontiers in Cardiovascular Medicine.

The title of this Editorial is “Of mice and men and zebrafishes. A promised land of discoveries for hypertension researchers” and states that, zebrafishes are going to be the tale for hypertension research in the immediate future. 

We are grateful to the authors (Daniela Sorriento and Guido Iaccarino) for their very positive evaluation of our article.

The Editorial can be found here.
