The dynamics of strange vector meson resonances (K* and K̄*) is investigated within the Parton-Hadron-String Dynamics (PHSD) transport approach. We present the time evolution of the production of K*− resonances from the QGP phase by quark fusion as well as from hadronic sources. We also give a brief overview of the modification of the K* through Kπ decay and K*N interaction in a hot and dense nuclear medium.
