About Prof. Teppema
Luc J. Teppema received his Ph.D. from the Catholic University (currently Radboud University) of Nijmegen in 1984. The subject of his thesis was focused on the relation between breathing and arterial and brain medullary acid base status. In 1991, after a long record of teaching physiology and neurophysiology to (bio)medical and physical therapy students, he was appointed in 1991 as an associate professor in physiology at the Dept of Physiology and Physics at the Medical Faculty of Leiden University. Since 2003, he is employed by the Leiden University Medical Centre, Dept. of Anesthesiology, where his research was focused on the effects of opioids and anesthetics on breathing, on the integration of peripheral and central chemoreflexes, on the complex effects on carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, and, more recently, on the influence of hypoxia on pulmonary vascular resistance and ventilation and how these hypoxia-induced effects can be modulated by pharmacological agents.
