Nima A. Sadiqyar
Research & Curriculum
A major global cause of disability and death in western countries lies in atherothrombotic complications. Within the vascular surgery group, Nima is focused on doing research on the pleiotropic effects of lipid-lowering therapies within the context of in vitro angiogenesis.
Throughout his Bachelor’s degree in Life Science & Technology, which was a joint-degree between Delft University of Technology and Leiden University, Nima obtained knowledge of both the biomedical and -technological aspects of cells and diseases. For his minor, he studied Biomedicine for one semester at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm (Sweden), where he followed the courses Oncology and Cardiometabolic & Infectious Diseases. For this exchange, he obtained the LUF International Study Fund (LISF). At the end of his Bachelor’s, he did his thesis within the Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC) at the Chemical Immunology group under Prof. Dr. Sander van Kasteren. Currently, he is doing a Master’s in Biomedical Sciences with a research specialization focused on biomedical translational research in surgery and allogeneic transplantation & immunotherapy.
