Doctor Andreas Zietzer

Heartcenter Bonn, University Hospital Bonn, Bonn (Germany)

Member of:

European Society of Cardiology
European Heart Rythm Association

Andreas Zietzer graduated from Charité – University Medical Center Berlin, Germany, in 2015. He completed his cardiological training at the University Hospital Bonn, Germany, in 2022, where he is currently undergoing training as an invasive electrophysiologist. His research area encompasses endothelial damage and regeneration during atherosclerosis and valvular heart disease in the context of kidney injury. He also investigates the mechanisms of intercellular transfer of bioactive molecules through extracellular vesicles. Furthermore, he is interested in the role of extracellular vesicles in atrial fibrillation and the utilization of digital applications for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
