Biography :

Dr. Esther Lutgens studied Medicine at the University of Maastricht and did a PhD in Experimental Vascular Pathology during her studies, resulting in an MD-PhD degree in 2001. In 2001, she obtained the TALENT stipend from NWO, which enabled her to do her post-doctoral fellowships at Harvard University in Boston, MA, and at Dartmouth University in Hanover, NH, USA (2002-2004). After her return at the University of Maastricht, she obtained a VENI-grant (NWO), a Dr. E. Dekker fellowship (DHF) then a VIDI grant (NWO), which allowed her to set up her own laboratory on Experimental Vascular Immuno-pathology. Focus of her research is the role of immune-modulation in atherosclerosis.
