Speaker information

Professor Anne Eichmann, Professor of Medicine (Cardiology), Cardiovascular Research Center , Yale University School of Medicine, Anne Eichmann’s undergraduate studies were in veterinary medicine at the Freie Universität Berlin followed by a Masters degree at the Weizman Institute, Israel. She received her PhD in Molecular and Cell Biology from Université Paris XIII in 1994, gaining Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches from Université de Marne-la-Vallée, in 2000. Then followed prestigious appointments with Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) and Institut National de la Santé et de la Recherche Médicale (INSERM). In September 2010 she was appointed as a Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at the Yale University Medical School, where her research is concerned with vascular and lymphatic development, and the mechanisms that direct vascular patterning and guidance.

Anatomical parallels between the nervous and the vascular system are readily apparent in peripheral body tissues, where blood vessels and nerves ramify throughout nearly all domains of the body and are usually aligned. To orchestrate the formation of their highly branched, exquisitely wired networks, nerves and blood vessels have developed shared cellular and molecular principles.

This event will be of particular relevance to medical professionals and those in the public and private sectors who are conducting research in medical sciences.
