  • Hiske van Duinen returned as a lecturer in physiology in 2014. She teaches physiology to students in different faculties, namely at the Medical curriculum (G2020; both Bachelor and Master), Dentistry, Human Movement Sciences, the University College Groningen (UCG), Pharmacology, Biology and Life Sciences & Technology, and Behavioural and Cognitive Neurosciences (Master and PhD students).

    Examples of topics that she teaches are neurophysiology, vegetative physiology, exercise physiology, cardiovascular physiology, respiratory physiology, gastrointestinal physiology, metabolism & endocrine physiology, and renal physiology.

    Furthermore, she is Course Director in G2020 in semesters 1.2 and 2.1; she coordinates two courses for Human Movement Sciences (General Physiology and Exercise Physiology), one course for the Faculty of Science and Engineering (Medical Physiology), and one for the University College Groningen (Human Physiology). She also is a member in the Opleidingscommissie Geneeskunde.

    Before teaching, she received her MSc in Biology from Groningen University (2002) and her PhD in Medical Sciences (Medical Physiology) from Groningen University (2007). During her PhD, she studied the relationship between physical fatigue and cognitive performance, under the supervision of dr. Inge Zijdewind. Following her graduation, she did postdoc studies on the human hand at the Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute (now known as Neuroscience Research Australia) in Sydney, Australia, under the supervision of Simon Gandevia and dr. Janet Taylor, and on proprioception at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, on a Marie Curie Grant of the European Research Council.

    At the moment she is involved in a study on exercise physiology tests in children with a repaired tetralogy of Fallot.
