Helmholtz Institute for Translational AngioCardioScience (HI-TAC)

At HI-TAC, the Max Delbrück Center and Heidelberg University combine expertise in cardiovascular research and systems biology. The establishment of HI-TAC began in July 2023.

The goal of HI-TAC is to investigate mechanisms by which the cardiovascular system mediates interorgan communication addressing influences of metabolism, the nervous system and the immune system. By gaining a better understanding of how changes to blood vessels and the heart trigger pathologies will allow for detection of early warning signs and inform treatments before symptoms occur.
