Professor Peter Carmeliet will take his audience on an exploration of the world of blood vessels. He will also express his fascination with Vesalius, the world-renowned anatomist who mapped the human body through cadaveric dissections –unprecedented in his time. In presenting the life and boundary-breaking scientific work of Vesalius, professor Carmeliet will draw upon striking parallels with the essence of current scientific research. Only this way solutions can be found for today's diseases.
