Lars-Egil Hammersbøen

  • PhD fellow; MD

Lars-Egil Reine Hammersbøen graduated as a Medical Doctor in 2016 from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim. After finishing his internship at Akershus University Hospital in 2018 he worked as an internal medicine resident, before joining the research group in 2020.

His research is focused on developing novel methods to evaluate cardiac function by utilizing myocardial strain analysis by speckle-tracking and non-invasive pressure-volume analysis by three-dimensional echocardiography. Hammersbøen has presented several abstracts at national and international congresses. He was nominated for the Young Investigator Award in Basic Sciences at the European Association of Cardiovascular Imaging in Barcelona and won the first price for best abstract at the Annual Norwegian Symposium on Heart Research in 2023, with the study “Non-invasive pressure-volume analysis by three-dimensional echocardiography: a novel method for left ventricular stroke work and efficiency estimation".

His supervisors are Marie Stugaard, MD, PhD, Espen Remme, Dr.Ing, PhD, and Otto Smiseth, Prof. emeritus, MD.
