Christian Mueller

Christian E. Mueller MD, FESC

Professor of Cardiology, Internal Medicine, and Intensive Care Medicine; Division Head, Cardiovascular Outcome Research, Basel University, Basel, Switzerland

Dr. Mueller is a clinical cardiologist at the University Hospital Basel. He is professor of cardiology, internal medicine and intensive care medicine at Basel University and head of the division of cardiovascular outcome research.

After graduation from Munich University in Germany, Dr. Mueller started his cardiology training and research activities at the Herz-Zentrum Bad Krozingen (chair: Professor Roskamm). Working in the research groups of Professor Frey (Herz-Zentrum Bad Krozingen, Germany) and Professor Hodgson (Cleveland University, United States) his research areas were cardiac modulations by the autonomous nervous system, the optimization of peri-procedural medical management in interventional cardiology, and intravascular ultrasound guidance of coronary angioplasty and stenting. Dr. Mueller continued his clinical training in internal medicine, intensive care medicine and cardiology at the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland (chair: Professor Perruchoud). With the support of the Swiss National Science Foundation, the Swiss Heart Foundation, and Basel University he was able to establish his own research group at the University Hospital in Basel which aims to contribute to improving the early diagnosis and management of acute heart failure and acute myocardial infarction. Important scientific milestones of this work include the publication of the first results of the BASEL (New England Journal of Medicine 2004) and APACE study (New England Journal of Medicine 2009).

In research as well as in life in general, Dr. Mueller particularly enjoys building, maintaining and leading winning teams of highly motivated and goal-oriented friends. Current research topics of his fantastic group of young & bright clinical researchers (www.dyspnea.ch) include the best possible clinical implementation of high-sensitivity cardiac troponins as well as other novel biomarkers into clinical care, rapid rule-in and rule-out strategies for acute myocardial infarction, the initial diagnosis and management of patients with acute dyspnea, the evaluation and clinical implementation of aggressive vasodilator therapy in acute heart failure, and the management of patients with syncope. In the last two decades, Dr. Mueller has mentored many young clinical researchers, of which more than 20 have achieved first authorships on important scientific publications in all major cardiovascular journals. Dr. Mueller also very much enjoys spending time with his lovely daugthers (8 and 6 years of age), playing football and tennis, swimming in the river Rhein, snowboarding, dancing and traveling.
