Victor van Hinsbergh

Emeritus Professor

Research focus

Basal and translational studies on vascular endothelium, in particucular endothelial hyperpermeability, angiogenesis, hypoxia and inflammation and endothelial dysfunction in diabetes.

Together with Pieter Koolwijk he runs a program on neovascularization and hypoxia (Netherlands Initiative for Regenerative Medicine).
