Michiel Henkens Coordinator of the 'hartenbank'
Michiel Henkens has been selected as coordinator of the 'Hartenbank'.
Michiel Henkens (MD, PhD-student and coordinator of the NHI): “There
is currently a major shortage of heart tissue and associated medical data to enable fundamental and translational research into heart diseases.
Because of this shortage, researchers often look for alternatives such as
animal and cell models. The NHI will fill this gap and provide a unique source of high-quality cardiac tissues with accompanying medical data, thereby facilitating and improving the quality of cardiovascular research. As such, the NHB will function as a translational bridge to boost cardiovascular research focused on optimising (early) diagnosis and prognosis of a wide range of heart diseases.
