Nutritional Biochemistry


Welcome to our Website!



The department Nutritional Biochemistry at the Institute of Nutrition of the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena investigates the molecular origin of atherosclerosis and its complications (e.g. myocardial infarction and stroke). At the focus of our interest are macrophages, the phagocytic cells of the immune system, and their contribution to the progression and outcome of atherosclerosis. The regulation of macrophage activation by pharmacological measures, food components and the interaction with neighboring cells is of particular interest. Our research is aimed at identifying novel approaches to prevent myocardial infarction and stroke.
