A key research focus at the DZHK partner site Munich is the identification of gene and environmental factors that are associated with cardiovascular disease. Here the aim is to identify molecular markers that predispose for the disease and its associated symptoms and, in conjunction with lifestyle factors, influence the development and course of the disease. More on: http://dzhk.de/1/partner-sites/munich
