Atherosclerosis: from models to novel pharmacological treatment strategies.

Guido De Meyer

Guido De Meyer

Professor Guido De Meyer is head of the Infla-Med Research Consortium of Excellence at the University of Antwerpen. His research focuses on the morphological and haemodynamic changes that occur during the development and rupture of atherosclerotic plaques. By combining various experimental models with human vascular material the role of autophagy, apoptosis, necrosis, necroptosis as well as neoangiogenesis in the vulnerability of the atherosclerotic plaque is extensively studied and coupled to pharmacological manipulation of the above measured parameters, This multidisciplinary approach might result in a better understanding of the various factors involved in the etiopathogenesis and clinical consequences of atherosclerosis and might result in new therapeutic interventions.
