Dance Your PhD 2014: Unbreak My Heart! In my PhD thesis I am investigating the effect of a heart attack on the genome. A heart attack happens when a vessel of the heart is blocked and this leads to tissue ischemia. The restoration of the blood flow (reperfusion) is necessary to prevent the heart muscle from dying. But even if the blocked vessel was re-opened in time, patients suffer from long term consequences of this so called ischemia-reperfusion-injury.
