Biography

Teemu Niiranen, MD, PhD, is a physician-scientist and a clinical hypertension specialist with a track record of productivity in hypertension research, successful mentoring, international research grant procurement, and inter-institutional international collaborations. His research on hypertension in large population cohorts has led to >150 publications that are cited by the European, American, British, and Japanese clinical hypertension guidelines. These publications include first-author articles in BMJ, Circulation, European Heart Journal, and JAMA Cardiology.

After finishing his PhD and clinical training, Dr. Niiranen received in-depth training in cardiovascular disease epidemiology and omics during a post-doctoral period at the Framingham Heart Study, the oldest and most prestigious cardiovascular cohort study in the world. After his post-doctoral period, he was selected as one of the new Group Leaders of the University of Turku Collegium of Science and Medicine. He is also employed as a Medical Specialist by the National Institute for Health and Welfare and coordinates the work of the Cardiometabolic Clinical Expert Group of the FinnGen study, a project with a goal to genotype up to 500 000 unique Finnish blood samples.

Dr. Niiranen has received young investigator awards from the American and Finnish Societies of Hypertension, and the American Heart Association. He is the secretary of the Finnish Hypertension Society and is currently mentoring, or has mentored 12 PhD students. He is an editorial board member of Hypertension, the leading journal in hypertension research.

Teaching

Semester leadership: Fall Semester, Clinical research path for fourth year medical students.

Course leadership: PGS1728: Getting Started with Medical Research (Year 4); PGS1741: Clinical Research Literature Exam (Year 4)

Course teaching: MEDI0117: General Propedeutics (Year 4)

Pedagogic training: Medical Pedagogy course (10 credits)

Research

In addition to general cardiovascular epidemiology, Dr. Niiranen's research has focused on the epidemiology of hypertension in large scale population cohorts. My prior studies particularly focused on home monitoring of blood pressure and more recently I have moved into examining the relation between hypertension and novel comics (metagenome and metabolome).
