Gerard PasterkampMD, PhD
Gerard Pasterkamp is Professor of the Laboratory of Clinical Chemistry at the University Medical Center Utrecht. His research interests focus on cardiovascular biology and innovation in biomarkers and drug targets to diagnose and treat atherosclerotic disease. The research group houses the largest atherosclerotic plaque biobank worldwide, Athero Express including more than 4500 patients.
This biobank has generated new insights into determinants of plaque destabilization. The laboratory also invests in the excavation of genetic determinants of atherosclerotic plaque characteristics. Professor Pasterkamp has coordinated national and European Union based consortia aimed at unraveling biomarkers and mechanisms of atherosclerotic disease.
