Cardiovascular physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology; experimental models of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion and infarction, cardiac arrhythmias, testing of newly developed antiischemic compounds. Focus on the endogenous adaptation of the heart against ischemic and reperfusion injury (e.g remote conditioning). The protective effect of vagal nerve stimulation on diseased heart and the possible cardioprotecvtive mechanism of non-neuronal cholinergic system. Metabolic syndrome in vasculature and in myocardium. The mechanism of left ventricle remodeling and heart failure, neuregulin-1 mediates vascular- and cardioprotection. The importance of altered microRNAs expression and signaling pathways in the development of myocardial ischemia/reperfusion injury and adverse left ventricle remodeling. Novel approaches for optimizing cardioprotection in cardiac surgery. The pathophysiological role of Tenascin C in cardiovascular disorders.
