Dr. Tine Willum Hansen

For more than 20 years my major interest and focus for my research has been hypertension and risk stratification based on ambulatory blood pressure measurement and arterial stiffness.

Since 2012, I have worked as senior researcher at the Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen, Denmark. Here I promote clinical studies of arterial structure and function in persons with high risk populations with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. I consider that a strategy to reduce the epidemic of cardiovascular disease is to obtain a better understanding of the impact of changes in the microcirculation. Therefore, I have commenced non-invasive examination of various aspects of the microcirculation.

When I am not at work I enjoy driving my bike, playing badminton with my family and cook in the garden.
