Prof. dr. J.W. Jukema

Prof. dr. J.W. (Wouter) Jukema is opgeleid tot cardioloog in Amsterdam (Vrije Universiteit) en Leiden (Leids Universitair Medisch Centrum (LUMC) en is voorzitter van "Leiden Vascular Medicine" en "Established Clinical Investigator" van de Nederlandse Hartstichting. Tevens "founding director" van het in 2007 opgerichte "Durrer Institute for Cardiogenetic Research" in Amsterdam. Zijn promotieonderzoek "angiografic coronary atherosclerosis trials" verrichtte hij voornamelijk op het Interuniversitair Cardiologisch Instituut Nederland (ICIN) in Utrecht.

Zijn onderzoek en dagelijks werkt richt zich met name op athero-trombose, zowel (interventie) cardiologie als coronaire atherosclerose. Deze athero-trombose research focust op vasculaire biologie, lipoproteïnen en genetische achtergronden van athero-trombose en restenose/trombose na PTCA, zowel in mensen als in transgene dieren, en de meerderheid van zijn publicaties hebben dan ook betrekking op deze aandachtsgebieden. Hij is (hoofd)onderzoeker van meerdere internationale athero-trombose studies en lid van een aantal (inter)nationale athero-trombose- en lipiden vergaderingen.
