Steven Meex

Clinical Chemist

Dr Steven Meex is a clinical chemist and head of the unit general clinical chemistry and hematology of the Central Diagnostic Laboratory of Maastrcith UMC+. He graduated in 2002 with specialisation in both molecular biology and epidemiology at Maastricht University. During his PhD at the Department of Internal Medicine in Maastricht, he worked on the cardiovascular genetics including type 2 diabetes and hyperlipidemia. Subsequently, he worked as acardiovascular research fellow at San Diego State University (2006) and at New York University (2008-2009).

His current research is focussed on cardiac markers,combining epidemiology, cell biology, analytical chemistry, and patient studies to improve the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular diseases.
