Tech­nical Uni­ver­sity Munich

Insti­tute of Phar­ma­co­logy and Tox­ic­o­logy (Prof. Dr. Dr. Stefan Engelhardt)


The Insti­tute of Phar­ma­co­logy and Tox­ic­o­logy is part of the Bieder­stein Cam­pus of the Tech­nical Uni­ver­sity of Munich, which is loc­ated between the Munich dis­trict of Schwabing and the Eng­lish Garden. The com­pletely ren­ov­ated build­ing offers a large team of sci­ent­ists and tech­nical staff an ideal research infra­struc­ture with mod­ern labor­at­ory space and high-qual­ity sci­entific equipment.
The Research Insti­tute for Trans­la­tional Medi­cine is ded­ic­ated to the search for new thera­peut­ics for car­di­ovas­cu­lar dis­eases, which are still the main cause of death world­wide. The aim is to identify novel tar­gets for drugs, ana­lyze their func­tion and develop innov­at­ive thera­peutic strategies.
The insti­tute also coordin­ates the Munich Heart Alli­ance. With this ini­ti­at­ive, clini­cians and sci­ent­ists want to work together to improve the devel­op­ment of novel heart ther­apies. The Munich Heart Alli­ance is a part­ner loc­a­tion of the Ger­man Centre for Car­di­ovas­cu­lar Research, DZHK.
