Mr M.A. de Rie (1956) has been named professor of Dermatology at the University of Amsterdam’s Faculty Of Medicine (AMC-UvA).

Having earned his PhD with a thesis on the activation of B-lymphocytes, Menno de Rie started training to become a dermatologist at the Academic Medical Center (AMC-UvA) in 1989. He specialises in immunodermatology with a focus on psoriasis, and has conducted both preclinical and clinical research on this autoimmune disease. De Rie is especially interested in translational medicine, a field that explores how pre-clinical observations can be applied in clinical practice, resulting in more effective treatments for dermatology patients.

As a part of the new alliance between VUmc and AMC-UvA (involving the merger of the two medical centres’ Dermatology departments on 1 January 2012), Menno de Rie will be mainly focusing on scientific research. In addition to bolstering the translational nature of scientific research, efforts are also being made to integrate the research activities of the two centres.

Menno de Rie worked at the Dermatology department of the Erasmus Medical Centre in Rotterdam since 2010, where he served as a teacher and head of the outpatient clinic. From 2008 to 2010, he served as director and senior expert on translational dermatology at Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research in Basel (Switzerland). Prior to this time, he served in various positions at the AMC-UvA’s Dermatology department. De Rie also served in various consultative and management capacities at both national and international level, including a tenure as member of the board at the European Academy for Dermatology and Venereology. He has published extensively in academic journals such as The New England Journal of Medicine, The Lancet, Nature, Archives of Dermatology, the Journal of Investigative Dermatology and the British Journal of Dermatology.
