  • Real-time, in vivo quantification of the determinants of oxygen delivery and extraction in the tissue
  • Identification and targeting of microcirculatory dysfunction in critically ill patients
  • Development of algorithms and machine learning tools for in vivo red blood cell tracking
  • Linking the understanding of physiological processes with the advantages of big data analysis in large databases
  • Elucidate the effect of extracorporeal life support (ECCO2R, ECMO) on gas exchange and tissue perfusion
  • Understand the adaptation processes of the microcirculation to hypoxia


  • In-vivo dark field microscopy of the sublingual, skeletal muscle and intestinal microcirculation
