Sofia-Iris Bibli is a junior Profes­sor for Cardio­vas­cu­lar Surveil­lance at the Medical Depart­ment of Goethe Univer­sity. Iris is also a faculty member of the Excel­lence Cluster Cardio-Pulmonary Insti­tute and a Princi­pal Inves­ti­ga­tor of the German Centre for Cardio­vas­cu­lar Research.

Her team focuses on metabolic surveil­lance mecha­nisms that govern vascu­lar regen­er­a­tion. By making use of multi-omic approaches, she inves­ti­gates how nutri­ents regulate vascu­lar epitrans­latomic, epitran­scrip­tomic and epige­netic profiles that control endothe­lial cell fitness.

Her research is supported by the Emmy Noether programme and the DFG initia­tives CRC1366 “Vascu­lar control of organ function” and CRC1531 “Damage control by the stroma-vascu­lar compart­ment”.  She won multi­ple awards, includ­ing the Oskar Lapp Prize, the Dr. Paul and Cilli Will-Stiftung Prize, the presti­gious Sharpey-Schafer Lecture Prize and the Johanna Quandt Young Academy Science Award.
