Doctor Andreas Zietzer

Heartcenter Bonn, University Hospital Bonn, Bonn (Germany)

Member of:

European Society of Cardiology

Andreas Zietzer graduated from Charité – Universitiy Medicine Berlin in the year 2015. He started his cardiological training at the Medical Department II at the University of Bonn led by Prof. Dr. med. Georg Nickenig in 2016. He completed his doctoral thesis entitled “On the influence of counterpulsation therapies, treadmill running and PPARγ agonists on leukocyte telomere biology and arterial collateral growth” under the supervision of Prof. Dr. med. Ivo Buschmann at the cardiology department at Charité Campus Virchow Klinikum in 2018 and achieved the ranking of "summa cum laude". Currently, Andreas Zietzer is supported by a Gerok-Grant from the BONFOR Program of the Medical Faculty of the University of Bonn as well as by the German Society of Cardiology. His main research focus is microRNA and sphingolipid packaging into endothelial cell derived extracellular vesicles.
