After his medical training at the Free University in Amsterdam, Aryan Vink studied inflammation in atherosclerosis at the Laboratory for Experimental Cardiology of the UMC Utrecht which led to a thesis. Fascinated by the pathophysiology and microscopic world behind diseases he decided to become a pathologist and finished his residency in 2007. Currently he is a staff pathologist with special interest in Cardiovascular, Pulmonary, Head and Neck and Autopsy pathology.

At the Pathology Department of UMC Utrecht we have one of the largest and best documented cardiac tissue biobanks of the world. Based on this cardiac tissue biobank the research of Aryan Vink focuses on the phenotype – genotype correlation in cardiomyopathies. In addition he works in close collaboration with researchers from the Hubrecht Laboratory to validate findings of basic myocardial research in human tissue from the biobank. Finally he is the consulting pathologist for the Athero-Express biobank.

On the topic of his other specialization, Pulmonary Pathology, he is involved in the continuous process of implementation of new diagnostic tests in lung cancer pathology to come to optimal personalized state-of-the-art treatment of lung cancer patients in the UMC Utrecht.
