Arjen Slooter studied Medicine at the Vrije Universiteit, Amsterdam (1986-1994) and worked subsequently as a resident in Neurology in Sint Lucas Hospital, Amsterdam (1994). He was research fellow in Neuro-Epidemiology at the G.H. Sergievsky Center, Columbia University, New York (1996) and received a PhD in Epidemiology from Erasmus University, Rotterdam (1998). During his residency in Neurology in the UMC Utrecht (1999-2004), he became enthusiastic for Neurocritical Care. After a fellowship in Intensive Care Medicine (AMC Amsterdam, 2004-2006), he rejoined the UMC Utrecht where he is currently working as consultant neurologist-intensivist at the Department of Intensive Care Medicine.

Still fascinated by neuropsychiatry, his research focus is on delirium in ICU patients. He currently works on an EEG-based device to detect delirium, functional connectivity in delirium, drug side-effects and delirium, postoperative delirium, and long-term outcome after ICU admission. He is board member of the European Delirium Association (EDA), and chairman of the delirium section of the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) guideline on pain, agitation, delirium, early mobilization and sleep. In addition, he is principal investigator of a multicentre trial on induced hypertension in subarachnoid haemorrhage patients with delayed cerebral ischemia, funded by Netherlands Brain Foundation and the Netherlands Heart Foundation.

The clinical focus of Arjen Slooter is on Intensive Care of neurological- and neurosurgical patients, and on neurological complications of critical illness. He is responsible for training of ICU nurses, residents and fellows in Neuro-Intensive Care in the UMC Utrecht. Arjen lives with wife Barbara, daughter Pien (2001) and son Bas (2004) in beautiful Utrecht.
