Professor Denise Hilfiker-Kleiner

Hannover Medical School, Hannover (Germany)

Denise Hilfiker-Kleiner received her PhD in 1994 at the University of Zurich and Emory University, Atlanta and her habilitation 2006 at Hannover Medical School (MHH). She has a longstanding experience in analyzing genetic and epigenetic mechanisms, signaling modules and cell to cell communication in the cardiovascular system relevant for cardiac physiological and pathophysiological processes. Her research focus is on heart failure specifically in the context of pregnancy and cancer in relation to degneration and regeneration. Her work has been published in top-ranked journals, i.e. Cell, Nature, JCI, EHJ, EMBO, Circulation and many others. From 2008-2020 she was professor for Molecular Cardiology and from 2013-2020 dean of research of the MHH. Since 2021 she is dean of the medical faculty and professor for side of effects of cancer therapies at the Philipps University, Marburg (G). Since 2018 she is a member of the German Research Council.
