After completing my study of medicine at the  University of Heidelberg, I pursued specialist  certification in cardiology and angiology at the  University of Freiburg under Professor Just. I am  certified in cardiology, internal medicine and  angiology.  My main fields of expertise during specialist  training in cardiology and angiology were in  ultrasound examination of the heart and vessels,  and in cardiac cathetherisation (including balloon  angioplasty).   My research activities were focussed on examining  heart muscle inflammation and potential  therapeutic approaches using vitamin C in patients  with high blood pressure, hypercholesterol, and in  smokers; my habilitation thesis addressed the  vascular system's endothelial-dependent  regulatory mechanisms.    I am currently researching cardiac inflammatory  processes via magnetic resonance technology, a  state-of-the-art imaging method. With this  technology we can detect cardiac inflammation at  an extremely early stage of development,  something other technologies cannot. This is  important, for instance, in the context of influenza,  tonsil infections, or bronchitis, as the heart can  often be affected without the patient's being aware  of it. Magnetic resonance (MR) technology also  plays a key role in monitoring very physically  active individuals who plan to significantly reduce  the intensity of their athletic involvement.
