He successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled "Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus and Metabolic Syndrome: Modulators and Prognosis." As of January 2022, Dr Thijs van Herpt has joined the staff of the Intensive Care department at Maastricht UMC+. As an internist-intensivist, he will continue his career conducting research, focusing on both cardiovascular and metabolic monitoring and the interplay with pharmacology and toxicology in critical ill patients. Thijs aims to implement research observations within the care team involving nurses, to benefit cardiovascular critical care.
