Hans Vink, PhD

Dr. Hans Vink is a pioneer in the study of the endothelial glycocalyx. He is one of the first researchers to study the glycocalyx when he focused his expertise on medical imaging. As a result, Dr. Vink and his team were one of the first research groups to capture realistic images of the glycocalyx and focus on its significance. He had been studying the microvascular system since the 1980s. It wasn’t until the mid-1990s that technology advancements enabled peering deep inside the capillaries to take pictures. The discovery of a very thick glycocalyx, and development of new techniques to take the early pictures, has led to ongoing research to determine how a compromised glycocalyx is linked to diseases and conditions. Dr. Vink is the Co-Founder and Chief Science Officer of Microvascular Health Solutions and BioRegenx.
