Our profile

Prevention of diseases, especially of the cardiovascular system, in childhood and adolescence, is a central research topic. We investigate cardiovascular risk factors in children, adolescents, young adults, and pregnant women, establish non-invasive, age- and sex-specific reference data, and record determinants of physical fitness in young athletes. We develop physical activity concepts and evaluate prevention programs for healthy and chronically ill children and adolescents.
