Jeanine Roeters van Lennep has been working as internist specialized in vascular medicine at the Erasmus Medical Center, Rotterdam, the Netherlands since 2010.
She is head of the vascular medicine clinic specialized in hereditary dyslipidemia. She combines this research interest with gender-specific medicine.
Her scientific research is dedicated to cardiovascular prevention, specifically diagnosis and treatment of Familial Hypercholesterolemia and sex-specific cardiovascular risk factors such as pre-eclampsia for which she obtained grants of e.g. the Dutch Heart Foundation and the Dutch Research Council.
She is very eager to share her enthusiasm on sex- and gender-specific medicine by organizing educational activities such as the 3-day Gender&Health Course and mentoring junior doctors and researchers.
Jeanine has broad leadership experience as board member of various scientific societies. Currently she is chair of the Dutch Society of Vascular Medicine, chair of the HORIZONSCAN committee of the Dutch National Healthcare Institute to review upcoming cardiovascular drugs, and board member of the Dutch Society of Gender&Health. Moreover she has been chair of the first Dutch Guideline on Dyslipidemia.
She is also involved in the Scandinavian Society of Atherosclerosis Research, an official EAS National Society, for which she organized invited speakers as chairperson in several editions and currently holds the post as financial auditor.
Jeanine is an active member of the EAS. Besides having attended and actively participated in many EAS congresses in the past years, she also organized the very successful Pediatric Familial Hypercholesterolemia Symposium as an official satellite symposium of the 87th EAS congress in 2019.
