Sebastiaan Verboeket completed his medical studies at the University of Amsterdam in 2014, which included a scientific internship at the University of Pittsburgh (USA) working in the field of microbicide gels and an Intensive Care rotation at Hospital Italiano in Buenos Aires (Argentina). After obtaining his medical license, he spent almost two years working as an Intensive Care resident at the Rode Kruis Hospital in Beverwijk and at the VU Medical Center in Amsterdam. In 2016 he started his PhD working as a research-physician with the AGEhIV cohort study (AIGHD, Amsterdam UMC – location AMC, GGD Amsterdam), studying the prevalence and incidence of age-associated comorbidities and its risk factors in people living with HIV. One of his specific areas of interest is pulmonary function in the context of ageing with HIV. In his spare time, he chairs the activist-group PrEPnu, fighting for the availability and uptake of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis in the Netherlands.
