Research profile

My research focuses on the regulatory mechanisms of RBC properties; RBC deformability and aggregation in particular. The investigations aim to explain the interaction between nitric oxide and other metabolites and cellular structures related to RBC properties and the impact of several conditions, including external shear forces, hypoxia or blood storage, on the RBC system. Changes are not only examined in healthy subjects/athletes, but also in patients with various diseases (Long-COVID, sickle cell anemia, ß-thalassemia).
