The ESC Textbook of Vascular Biology (The European Society of Cardiology)Editat de Robert Krams, Magnus Bäck
en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 30 Mar 2017
The publication of the current ESC Textbook of VascularBiology (edited by Robert Krams and Magnus Back) is timely, since it comes at a moment at which vascular biology as a science has fulfilled its promise. Indeed, it has shown that it can provide insights into the molecular mechanisms of vascular disease and that such findings can be translated to the clinical level to the benefit of cardiovascular patients. The editors and the authors should becongratulated for such an excellent textbook which, I am sure, will stimulate the next generation of vascular biologists and established investigators alike. And indeed, this is truly needed as many secrets of vascular biology wait to be discovered.
Professor Krams holds a Chair in Molecular Bioengineering at Imperial College, London. Prior to joining Imperial College he worked as Associate Professor in the Department of Bioengineering, Thoraxcentre in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and as associate professor/chair in the department of Medical Physics, Free University in Amsterdam. He received his Medical Degree and Ph.D. from the Free University, Amsterdam in 1989.His research is focussed on the molecular mechanism underlying biomechanical stimuli.Associate Professor Magnus Bäck is senior consultant in cardiology and research team leader at the Center for Molecular Medicine in Stockholm, Sweden. The research undertaken has two main focuses: lipid mediators and valvular heart disease.
