Professor Jørgen Ingerslev

Jørgen Ingerslev was formerly Professor in Haemostasis and Thrombosis at Aarhus University, Denmark, and a Haemophilia Centre Director at the National Haemophilia Center of Western Denmark. This centre provides services to younger patients with venous thromboembolism and occlusive cerebrovascular disease.

Professor Ingerslev has degrees in internal medicine and clinical biochemistry, and his scientific interests have mainly focused on haemophilia, von Willebrand disease, factor VIII/von Willebrand factor and the clinical and biochemical aspects of bleeding in haemophilic patients with inhibitors. Recent developments focused on the dynamics of fibrin formation and thrombin generation in haemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

He is a member of the American Society of Haematology (ASH) and the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), and has served terms as Chairman and co-Chair for the Factor VIII and Factor IX subcommittee. He has also served as Secretary of the European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD).
