Lipoprotein(a) Epidemiology

Lead: Florian Kronenberg   
Co-Lead: Claudia Lamina    Barbara Kollerits   

Although Lp(a) is well established as a causal risk factor for cardiovascular disease, many questions still deserve further research. We are interested in the genetic and non-genetic factors which are influencing Lp(a) concentrations.

Lipoprotein(a) Genomics

Lead: Stefan Coassin   
Co-Lead: Florian Kronenberg    Sebastian Schönherr   

We are interested in understanding how genetic variants in LPA contribute to the huge variance in lipoprotein(a) concentrations observed between individuals and across ancestries and identifying the causal mechanisms.
