Eva Boorsma


Eva Boorsma has been working as a PhD student for Adriaan Voors since April 2019. Prior to this, she was a junior physician at the Cardiology department in the UMCG. Clinical medicine is what she likes most and her current job perfectly fits that preference, since she mostly does research directly related to the clinic.

Current activities

The main aim of her ongoing projects is to define different congestive subtypes in acute decompensated heart failure to eventually find tailored treatments for each category.
