Prof. Dr. Erik Biessen
Prof. Dr. Biessen is full professor in Experimental Vascular Pathology at Maastricht UMC+ Hospital. His group is embedded in CARIM, the cardiovascular research institute Maastricht. The career path of Prof. Dr. Biessen followed more of a Brownian movement than a straight line and he has regularly changed his field of expertise from biophysical chemistry via organic chemistry and drug targeting to disease pathophysiology. However, since 2000, Prof. Dr. Biessen has been increasingly focused on cardiovascular research, and more specifically on the role of inflammation in this disease. Prof Biessen is VIDI+ laureate of N.W.O. and Established investigator of the Netherlands Heart Foundation.
