The focus of the Jovinge group is on the identification of cardiac progenitor cells, to follow their fate and investigate their therapeutic potential for cardiac diseases. In the process of investigating new therapies for heart disease, Jovinge's research group is studying the mechanisms of certain types of heart damage: inflammatory mechanisms in plaque rupture and myocardial inflammation.

Stefan Jovinge is coordinator of the European Commission funded research consortium CardioCell.
