Cardiovascular physiology and exercise
Dick Thijssen's research group focuses on the field of cardiovascular physiology and physical (in)activity. His work strongly focuses on understanding the impact of exercise training and physical activity on reducing the risk of developing cardiovascular and metabolic diseases.
Thijs Eijsvogels’ research group studies the acute and long-term effects of exercise on health. Current projects involve cardiac imaging following lifelong exercise training, optimizing cardiac rehab, assessing thermoregulatory responses in elite athletes and development of cooling strategies.
