dr. R.T. (Rolf) Urbanus Assistant Professor
- Hematology/Van Creveldclinic
Rolf Urbanus obtained his PhD at the department of Clinical Chemistry and Haematology of the UMC Utrecht on a dissertation entitled “Arterial Thrombosis in the Antiphospholipid Syndrome” in 2008. Following a period as a Postdoctoral Fellow, he became an Assistant Professor at the same department in 2011 to establish his own research line. When Rolf joined the Van Creveldkliniek in 2018, an existing fruitful collaboration was formalized and the Van Creveld laboratory for Thrombosis and Haemostasis was founded. Rolf’s current research focusses on the (patho)physiology of thrombosis and haemostasis, with an emphasis on rare thrombotic and hemorrhagic disorders. Special interests are the autoimmune disorder Antiphospholipid Syndrome (APS) and inherited platelet function defects.
