Marcus Lancé MD, Ph.D studied medicine in Berlin at the Medical School of the Free University (1991-1995) and the Charité (1995 – 1996). In 1997, he entered his residency in anesthesiology at the Kliniken MariaHilf, Department of Anesthesiology, Mönchengladbach, from which he moved in 2001 to the University Hospital of the RWTH Aachen. Here, he finalized his specialization in anesthesiology and the super-specialization in intensive care. After a two year interim period at the Thorax Centre Rotterdam (the Netherlands), where he gained a high degree of experience in cardiac anesthesiology, he moved in 2006 to the Departments of Anaesthesiology and Intensive Care Medicine of the MUMC+ of Maastricht. In 2017 he changed to Hamad Medical Corporation, where he has the challenge to build up research of the Department of Anaesthesiology. Marcus’ focus of interest is coagulation, hemostasis and thrombosis with regard to optimizing treatment algorithms. This topic also covered his PhD thesis. His group developed a mock circulation model in which they investigate the coagulation pattern during extracorporeal circulation. He has either authored, or co-authored over 25 scientific papers.
