Ervin G. Erdös, MD
Professor Emeritus of Pharmacology
University of Munich, Germany
Dr. Erdös is the recipient of the American Heart Association Research Achievement Award, one of its two highest awards.
The award is an indication of his leadership in enzymology and cardiovascular research.
We work on the enzymology of peptide metabolism and its inhibition. The Laboratory of Peptide Research has discovered,
characterized and cloned several enzymes (and in most cases made them available as recombinant proteins) that are of importance in normal and
pathological processes. We are studying these proteins using the techniques of cell and molecular biology. Of current special interest is the
mode of action of the therapeutically widely used angiotensin I converting enzyme inhibitors at the cellular and subcellular levels.
