Professor Dirk J Duncker

Erasmus University Medical Centre, Rotterdam (Netherlands (The))

Member of:

European Society of Cardiology
Heart Failure Association

Dirk J. Duncker obtained his PhD and MD degrees, respectively, in 1988 and 1989 at the Erasmus University Rotterdam. He worked as a post-doctorate research fellow at the University of Minnesota from 1991-1994, after which he returned to the Department of Cardiology (Thoraxcenter) of the Erasmus MC, University Medical Center Rotterdam. In 1995 he received a 5-year Research Fellowship Stipend from the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts & Sciences, and in 2000 he became Established Investigator of the Netherlands Heart Foundation. He was appointed Professor of Experimental Cardiology in 2003. His research interests include cardiovascular (patho)physiology, in particular the regulation of coronary blood flow and coronary microvascular tone as well as cardiac function during exercise and in a variety of cardiovascular disorders, including metabolic disorders, ischaemic heart disease, cardiac hypertrophy and heart failure.
