Prof. Ron Heeren

At the forefront of molecular imaging
 

Ron Heeren, Distinguished Professor and Limburg co-chair of the Maastricht Multimodal Molecular Imaging Institute, has devoted his career to innovations in mass spectrometry and their applications to other disciplines.

About his current research direction, he says:

"A comprehensive understanding of molecular patterns of health and disease is needed to pave the way for personalised medicine and tissue regeneration. New physical technology developments in mass spectrometry based chemical microscopes have now firmly established themselves in translational research. They target biomedical tissue analysis in various diseases as well as other chemically complex surfaces. In concert they elucidate the way in which local environments can influence molecular signalling pathways on various scales, from molecule to man.
