Join Our Cutting-Edge Research in Experimental Hypertension

IPHYS Laboratory of Experimental Hypertension, located at the prestigious Czech Academy of Sciences‘ Biomedical Research Campus in Prague, is a renowned Institute specializing in normal and pathological physiology. Comprised of several scientific and service departments for experimental research (http://www.fgu.cas.cz/en/), we are at the forefront of advancing knowledge in the field.

Laboratory of Experimental Hypertension, under the leadership of Dr. Ivana Vaneckova, an esteemed expert in the field, focuses on studying the mechanisms of blood pressure regulation and developing new therapies for hypertension (https://www.fgu.cas.cz/en/departments/experimentalni-hypertenze).

Our research areas include:

  • Investigating the cardiovascular actions of new antidiabetic gliflozins in experimental hypertension, chronic heart and kidney disease.
  • Exploring the central and peripheral mechanisms contributing to blood pressure maintenance
  • Understanding the role of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems in cardiovascular diseases.
