In 2002 he switched his Focus into Clinical Pharmacology and Epidemiology, and since then, has held a number of positions at Sanofi Aventis and the Institute for Clinical Pharmacology at the TU Dresden.
During his time in Bad Nauheim, Dr Bramlage investigated the functional adaptation of cardiomyocytes to a variety of diseases that involve myocardial ischaemia. Since then, he has dealt with many topics in the fields of cardiovascular pharmacology and epidemiology. He has also recently been involved in major epidemiological studies concerning aortic stenosis, arterial hypertension, diabetes, and the metabolic syndrome, and in a series of clinical studies on the treatment of cardiovascular disease.
Dr Bramlage has published over 400 articles in peer-reviewed journals and is an active member of the League for the Fight Against High Blood Pressure and the German Society of Cardiology.
