University Heart & Vascular Center Hamburg, Hamburg (Germany)
Dr. Christian Schulte is a clinician scientist in cardiology, working in the translational interface between noncoding RNA biology and their clinical implications i.e. as circulating biomarkers in cardiovascular disease. He started his research in parallel to his clinical training at the University Heart Center Hamburg, Germany, where his research interest focused on circulating microRNAs. In 2016 he was awarded a two-year research fellowship by the German Research Foundation (DFG) to join the group of Prof. Manuel Mayr at King’s College London, where he pursued a project on circulating noncoding RNAs compared to protein biomarkers in cardiovascular disease and the potential of clinical implementation as biomarkers, embedded in a PhD programme.
Currently, Dr. Schulte is building up his own research group in Hamburg, alongside completing his clinical training.
