CRC 1607 | Lecture of Visiting Professor Joanna Maria Kalucka

Vascular Dysfunction in Cardiometabolic Diseases

Lecture of Visiting Professor Joanna Maria Kalucka

Prof. Dr. Joanna Maria Kalucka currently serves as an Associate Professor and Group Leader of the Laboratory of Angiogenesis and Inflammation at the Department of Biomedicine, Aarhus University, Denmark. Prior to this role, she held postdoctoral positions at KU Leuven in Belgium and Uniklinikum Erlangen in Germany. This summer she is a visiting professor at the Institute of Medical Microbiology, Immunology and Hygiene (Prof. J. Jantsch) within the guest professorship program of the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Cologne.

Ms. Kalucka’s research focuses on the heterogeneity and functionality of endothelial cells in cardiovascular diseases and the role of endothelial cells in inflammatory responses. Her lab aims to unravel the basic mechanisms of disease pathogenesis and investigate the consequences of impaired vascular systems in cancer, obesity, and inflammation.

To achieve these goals, the lab employs a wide range of approaches, including state-of-the-art multi-omics technologies (single-cell and spatial RNA sequencing, proteomics, and metabolomics), organoid cultures of human and animal origin, cell-based experimental models, molecular techniques, and mathematical modeling and simulation.
