Dr Sverker Jern is professor of Cardiovascular Physiology and senior consultant in Clinical Physiology at the Sahlgrenska University Hospital. Dr Jern’s research is focused on molecular mechanisms that regulate vascular hemostatic mechanisms in atherothrombotic conditions. His group has performed pioneering studies of the endogenous thromboprotective defense in blood vessels and current studies concern the key role of epigenetic mechanism in vascular fibrinolysis.
