Matthijs Kox assistant professor

Matthijs Kox is an assistant professor at the Intensive Care department and affiliated to the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences. He is embedded in the Infectious diseases and global health theme. Matthijs supervises a team of 12 PhD candidates and a research technician, all of whom perform translational studies into modulation of the immune response, with a focus on sepsis. His research ranges from in vitro experiments to animal experimentation, studies in human models of infection, and clinical trials. Furthermore, he pioneered studies into voluntary modulation of the sympathetic nervous system and immune response using a behavioral intervention developed by “Iceman” Wim Hof. He co-authored >100 peer reviewed papers and several chapters in books. Click here to see his pubmed-listed publications.
