Prof. Dr. Paul Quax
Professor of Experimental Vascular Surgery
Current research focusses on inflammatory and immune modulation in vascular remodeling in general and vein graft remodeling in particular, the role of non-coding RNAs in vascular remodeling and most recently the role of the microvascular bed in the regulation of pathological and regenerative processes of cardiovascular remodeling. Imaging of vascular remodeling is in all these processes of high importance
Paul Quax is a vascular biologist by training, head of Experimental Vascular Surgery, chair of Cardiovascular Research Theme at the LUMC and chairman of Leiden Vascular Medicine. He obtained his PhD in 1991 at the University of Leiden and worked in the cardiovascular research field ever since. His research interests are the pathophysiological aspects of vascular remodeling in general, ranging from atherosclerosis to angiogenesis, from post-interventional vascular remodeling to basic aspects of vascular and endothelial cell biology. He has published more than 260 peer reviewed papers, is member of several grant reviewing boards and editorial boards of cardiovascular journals.
