Martin Schalij joins executive board of LUMC

Martin Schalij has joined the board of directors of the LUMC, while remaining a practicing cardiologist. As previous head of department, he played a crucial role in the development of the lab as we know it today. Especially his efforts in realizing translational cardiovascular research are present all around us with the recent opening of the brand new CardioVascular Intervention Center (CVIC). This center is built next to the lab and physically connected by a one-of-a-kind tissue lock for transfer of patient material.
