Welcome to the homepages of the CardioReg team!

Research at CardioReg focuses on both preclinical and clinical aspects of tissue regeneration. Special emphasis is on cardiac regeneration and wound healing.

We utilize preclinical research methodologies for drug target discovery and elucidation of specific disease-associated pathological processes. We are located at the Meilahti Hospital campus as part of the Academic Medical Center Helsinki and work in close collaboration with cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, plastic surgeons, burn surgeons, anaesthesiologists and radiologists.

Our research aims at guiding inherent regenerative responses with pharmacotherapy as well as stem and progenitor cells. We also evaluate the possibilities of various gene therapy-modalities in these settings.
