Interrelations between arterial and venous thromboembolic diseases

John-Bjarne Hansen is is a clinical specialist and professor in hematology. He leads the K.G.Jebsen – Thrombosis Research and Expertise Center (TREC) which focus on inherited and non-inherited risk factors of venous thrombosis and to extend the understanding of the pathogenesis of venous thrombosis. He is the principal investigator of the Tromsø study, a North Norwegian population based cohort study that generated many recognized publications about epidemiology in venous thromboembolism.

John-Bjarne is assistant editor of Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
