After graduating in April 2021, Iris Beldhuis started working as a physician-scientist in the group of Professor Voors. She started in the group as a bachelor medicine student with several pilot projects, eventually writing her master thesis of medicine at the department as well. During her studies, Iris had the opportunity to go abroad for a research fellowship at Harvard Medical School with Prof Solomon and Prof Pfeffer. Her research focuses on worsening renal function, (de)congestion and response to therapy in patients with heart failure.
As a sub-investigator, Iris coordinates the PUSH AHF study funded by the Dutch Heart Foundation (Principal investigator Dr ter Maaten and Dr Damman), which investigates the effect of natriuresis guided therapy in acute heart failure to improve diuretic response, decongestion, and clinical outcomes (pushahf.nl).
