Dr. Joppe Nijman is pediatric intensivist and clinical researcher in the University Medical Center Utrecht, Netherlands. In 2002, he started his academic career with a bachelor degree Biology / Biomedical Sciences at Utrecht University, followed by the Selective Utrecht Medical Master (SUMMA) which he successfully completed in 2011. Subsequently, he acquired his PhD degree at Utrecht University on “Postnatally Acquired Cytomegalovirus Infections in Preterm Infants” in 2013. During his PhD trajectory, he also participated in the “Effective Perinatal Intensive Care in Europe study” funded by the EU. In 2018, he finished his pediatrics residency in the Wilhelmina’s Childrens Hospital in Utrecht, The Netherlands, followed by a pediatric intensive care fellowship in the same hospital. During his residency, he supervised a PhD student on “Advances in congenital and postnatal cytomegalovirus infections” who successfully defended her thesis in 2017.

At the start of his clinical fellowship he has shifted his research focus and now aims to improve the prognosis of infants with congenital heart disease using advanced data science. Currently, he is co-chair of the Data Science working Group of the European Society of Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care (ESPNIC), member of the European Association Brain in Congenital Heart Disease consortium (EUR-ABC) and principal investigator of the Necrotizing Enterocolitis in Congenital Heart Disease (NECTAR) study.
