Eduard obtained his medical degree in 2022 after studying medicine at Leiden university. During his clinical work at the department of surgery in the Haaglanden Medical Centre (HMC), the Hague, he also participated in clinical studies on the predictive value of intraoperative blood flow on maturation rates of arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs), and the beneficial effects of preoperative forearm exercises on AVFs. Further exploring his interest in vascular surgery, he started in the group of Dr. M.R. de Vries and Prof. Dr. Quax in the Leiden University Medical Centre (LUMC) in 2023, where he will focus on pre-clinical research involving singe cell RNA sequencing in arteriovenous fistulas in murine models.
