Research Departments Physiology 20200701 Ass Prof Thijs Eijsvogels
29 June 2020

Thijs Eijsvogels, from the department of Physiology, has been appointed associate professor Exercise Physiology as of 1 July 2020.

The field of exercise physiology investigates what happens to the body during exercise. Thijs aims to understand the (patho)physiological responses of exercise on cardiovascular health and temperature regulation. For this purpose, he investigates the benefits and potential deleterious effects of exercise across the whole spectrum of physical activity: from a sedentary lifestyle to excessive volumes of exercise. Based on these outcomes, he develops and evaluates interventions that reduce the risk of adverse cardiovascular events, heat-related illnesses, and reductions in exercise performance. His ultimate mission is to optimize the health benefits of an active lifestyle for primary and secondary prevention.
