The University of Potsdam is the third largest University in the Berlin/Brandenburg area with some 21.000 students and staff. The Department of Animal Physiology (at the Institute of Biology and Biochemistry) is headed by Salim Seyfried and studies cardiovascular development, physiology and pathophysiology using the model organism zebrafish. One focus of research deals with the molecular crosstalk between myocardium and endocardium in response to physiological changes such as blood flow. They are also working with a vascular disease model for stroke, the cerebral cavernous malformations (CCM).
