In the last 20 years, we were fortunate to work with excellent researchers in our team. Prof.dr. Van Gelder was involved in the PhD projects of all listed, dr. Rienstra was supervisor and co-promotor since 2015. Most of the alumni work as clinical cardiologists or other medical specialists in The Netherlands, and collaborate in our ongoing atrial fibrillation research.
