Miranda Schram

Associate professor

Dr Miranda Schram holds a MSc in Biomedical Sciences (1999) and in Epidemiology (2002). She recieved her PhD entitled 'Patophysiology of diabetic complications, arterial stiffness, endothelial dysfunction and inflammation' at VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam in 2004, and is a registered Epidemiologist B. She has worked as post-doc epidemiologist at Erasmus MC in Rotterdam, at Leiden University Medical Center and as senior investigator at the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in Bilthoven. From 2008 onwards, she has been working at Maastricht UMC+ as senior investigator at The Maastricht Study.

Miranda Schram is one of the founders of The Maastricht Study, a novel population-based cohort study on type 2 diabetes and its complications. Her scientific work focusses on the etiology and epidemiology of cognitive decline and depression in type 2 diabetes with a specific interest in the role of early vascular dysfunction. A second research line focusses on psychosocial aspects of diabetes, to understand how social networks, but also ethnicity and diabetes distress can affect diabetes treatment and the development of complications. Miranda is board member of The Maastricht Study, coordinator of the Dutch Diabetes Pearlstring Initiative, active member of the PSAD study group of the EASD and involved in the Netherlands Consortium of Demetia Cohorts.
