Prof. Andrés Hidalgo as adjunct Professor at IPEK

12.09.2014 -

Starting September 15, Prof. Andrés Hidalgo, PhD, has been appointed as Adjunct Professor for Vascular Inflammation at IPEK. Continuing to serve as faculty of the Centro Nacional de Investigaciones Cardiovasculares, Madrid, Prof. Hidalgo is one of the world-leading experts on imaging of vascular inflammation including. His research has been instrumental in elucidating the molecular mechanisms controlling the recruitment, trafficking and bone marrow homeostasis of phagocytes, their interactions with platelets and migratory behavior.

Andres Hidalgo received his B.S. at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid in 1993, and received his PhD in 1999 for his work in the control of adhesion in hematopoietic cells, in Dr. Joaquin Teixidó’s laboratory (CIB, Madrid). In 2000 he moved to New York to the group of Dr. Paul Frenette (Mount Sinai School of Medicine) to study leukocyte and blood stem cell migration, as well as the receptors that mediate inflammation. In 2008, after obtaining a Ramón y Cajal reintegration fellowship, he returned to Spain to start his own laboratory. His lab is interested in basic aspects of neutrophil biology, mechanisms of vascular inflammation and stem cell homeostasis.
