Fatih Arslan

MD PhD FESC Chief Scientific Officer

Fatih obtained his PhD at the UMC Utrecht in 2011 at the Laboratory of Experimental Cardiology, where he worked on novel therapeutic targets to enhance cardiac repair mechanisms of the heart after myocardial infarction. His main focus is immunological and genetic phenomena and their modulation to reduce damage to the heart. He has vast hands-on experience with various in-vivo techniques to study cardiac injury in mice, rats and pigs. In addition, he gained expertise in drug development via contract research with other small biotech companies during his PhD. His efforts to push the therapeutic potential of anti-EDA therapy have resulted in several patents and proprietary compounds and biomarkers that are now the basis for EnCare Biotech B.V. He is an active clinician as a resident cardiology and is part-time assistant professor leading his own research group. He was appointed as a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology in 2010, and awarded with various grants and prices during his career.
