Prof. Dr. Peter Sterk


Prof. Peter Sterk, MD, PhD, is emeritus at the Dept. Respiratory Medicine, Academic Medical Centre, Amsterdam. He was trained as clinical physiologist and works on replacing traditional diagnoses by individual bio-clinical phenotypes.

He is coordinator of the U-BIOPRED project, funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) from the European Union (EU) and the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA).

He focuses on translational studies in the phenotyping, monitoring and targeted therapies of patients with chronic airways diseases. This includes molecular fingerprinting by transcriptomics and particularly non-invasive breathomics. The latter is currently bringing Data Driven Medicine to the clinic.
