Research interests

Gilles Diercks, born in Lyon (France) in 1969, completed his Medical School at the VUMC, Amsterdam in 1995. He finished his residency in Pathology at the University MedicaI Center of Groningen (UMCG), the Netherlands, in 2009. In that year he became staff member at the Pathology lab in the UMCG with main expertises in dermatopathology, cardiovascular pathology and pathology of soft tissue tumors. He finalized his PhD thesis on “Microalbuminuria. A cardiovascular risk indicator” in 2004 at the Department of Cardiology. His diagnostic activities now cover the whole spectrum of dermatopathology. Dr Diercks’s long term research interests particularly relate to dermatopathology with special attention for immunofluorescence and electron microscopy of the skin. He participates in various national and international collaborative research groups on this subject.
