University Medical Center Göttingen

Prof. Tobias Bruegmann is Juniorprofessor for physiology and pathophysiology at the Institute of Cardiovascular Physiology at the University Medical Center Göttingen since the beginning of 2019. He graduated in medicine in Bonn (2012) and received his MD in 2013 for establishing optogenetic stimulation of the heart and the PhD in 2019. Ever since, he focused his work on applying this new method to address new questions in cardiac electrophysiology, vegetative physiology and to explore new treatment options such as optogenetic termination of cardiac arrhythmia or laryngeal pacemaking. In the new working group in Göttingen, he focuses on directed tool development to study vegetative physiology and to explore the feasibility of new treatments options for possible clinical use in the future.
