Arina ten Cate-Hoek

Assistant Professor

Dr Arina ten Cate-Hoek graduated as a medical doctor at the University of Amsterdam and as a Clinical Epidemiologist at the University of Maastricht. Her PhD thesis was on new developments in diagnosis and treatment of deep venous thrombosis. She currently holds a clinical position at the Heart+Vascular Center of Maastricht UMC+ and her specialty is in the prevention and treatment of venous thrombotic disease, especially the Post Thrombotic Syndrome. She is the medical director of the Anticoagulation Clinic as well as the medical coordinator of the Thrombosis Expertise Centre Maastricht. She gained some laboratory experience in the laboratory of the Harvard University Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston and the Laboratory of the Netherlands Red Cross Blood Transfusion Service (CLB)in Amsterdam.

Since 2003, she has been working at the Maastricht UMC+ where she combines clinical work with clinical and translational research. The main topic of het research is prevention and treatment of the Post Thrombotic Syndrome. She received research grants mainly from ZonMw Efficiency research.
