ESM Newsletter 1/2021

Dear members of the European Society for Microcirculation, dear colleagues,

Please find attached the newsletter 1-2021 to highlight ongoing and future activities of the ESM and its national societies.

We are glad to welcome new members of our ESM Strategy Committee in our team and would like to include in the next issues of our newsletter also the presentation of new members, featured labs, recent articles etc. If you would like to contribute to these new features, do not hesitate to contact us. The e-mails are on our website: www.esmicro.eu.

In addition, we would be grateful, if you could support us to establish a presence of the ESM on selected social media platforms. We suggest initially Twitter and Linkedin as platforms for our society. In this context, we would like to appoint young/young at heart Social Media Experts/Ambassadors who wish to post news from our society on a regular manner.

We would be glad, if you could send us your feedback, whether you or your young colleagues would be willing to participate and how do you would envision the presence of our society on online/social media platforms in the future.

We are looking forward to your response.

Best regards, also from the whole ESM team, and wishing you all a very Happy Easter,

PhD position(s)

The dept. of Internal Medicine of Maastricht University Medical Center is looking for a PhD-student within an Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the European Commission. This network is named MINDSHIFT (Mechanistic Integration of vascular aND endocrine pathways for Subtyping Hypertension: an Innovative network approach for Future generation research Training).

In the project Metabolic drivers of hypertension: focus on the microcirculation, the candidate will identify circulating metabolic drivers of obesity-associated microcirculatory dysfunction and hypertension. A comprehensive analysis of detailed metabolic information will be instrumental in the metabolic and endocrine subtyping of overweight/obese, hypertensive patients. The candidate will use data of The Maastricht Study, a deep-phenotyped, population-based cohort that is enriched for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
This project is supervised by Prof. C.Stehouwer, Dr. A.Houben, Dr. M.van Greevenbroek. For more information click here, or mail to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

In MINDSHIFT a total of 15 projects have been defined. Please click here for all projects.
