Department of Cardiology

The Laboratory for Experimental Cardiology at Maastricht University, part of the Department of Cardiology at Maastricht UMC+ (MUMC+), conducts Cardiovascular research and teaches classes at the Medical School, University College and the Science College.

Research within the Department of Cardiology aims to be translational from lab bench to patient. We investigate the genetical, molecular and cellular determinants of Heart Failure and Arrhythmogenesis.


Teaching activities take place in several study directions within the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences (FHML) and the Science College, for which theoretical and practical courses on Genetics and Molecular Cell Biology are organised.
