On Monday, 20 May 2019, Bart will present at Pint of Science Maastricht (https://www.pintofscience.nl/), a science festival where researchers talk about their work in an informal, low-level setting – as the name suggests, in a pub.
In his talk named “Cardiovascular top models”, he will take you through his research life:
Stiff arteries – you may have heard about the phenomenon. But why does arterial stiffness matter? How does it affect the heart? Can we measure it, without opening up a patient? What causes arteries to stiffen?
Computer models – some simple, some more elaborate – helped me to shed light on these questions. During my talk, I will take you along my scientific journey around the world, centered around understanding and quantifying arterial stiffness.
Come join us! Location details will follow shortly.
