Sex differences in cardiovascular disease
Miranda obtained her master’s degree at Utrecht University and her PhD on metabolic disorders from Maastricht University. She has since then completed postdoc positions at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA, at Eindhoven University of Technology and at Maastricht University. Miranda’s ambition is to treat cardiac disease via metabolic interventions. She studies the relationship between structural, metabolic and functional changes in the failing heart to better understand the molecular triggers of heart failure and to identify new targets for treatment.
