About

After finishing his bachelor of medicine at the University of Groningen in 2007, he carried out his scientific training on the topic "brain death and organ transplantation" at the Department of Surgery of the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG). His scientific training motivated him to do further research in the form of an MD / PhD program, at the Department of Clinical Pharmacology, UMCG, University of Groningen, supervised by Prof. Rob Henning, Prof. Frans Kroese and Dr. Arjen Strijkstra. In his PhD research, he studied the potential clinical (immunological) applications of hibernation. Part of the research was conducted in collaboration with the Institut für Physiologie und Pathophysiology, Heidelberg University; Vth Medizinische Klinik / Néphrologie, Medizinische Facultät Mannheim, Heidelberg University; Lymphocyte Biology Lab , National Institutes of Health, Bethesda; School of Veterinary Medicine, University of Wisconsin, Madison and the Rowett Institute of Nutrition and Health, University of Aberdeen, Scotland. The publication in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2011) was awarded both the Ritsema van Eck award and the Max Gruber award. He is one of the first participants that successfully completed the basic teaching qualification training for students. In addition, he is active as scuba diving instructor, chaired the board of the Northern Dutch Diving Federation and organized the symposium "Hibernation in the Clinic" as well as a symposium on hyperbaric medicine. After completion of his PhD-thesis, he was certified as a pharmacologist and immunologist. Currently, he combines his residency in rheumatology-immunology with clinical pharmacology and a research tenure track on the study of sterile inflammation and auto-immunity. Radio interview Hoe?Zo!
