After finishing high school, Daniel Vijlbrief (1975) studied at Millersville University of Pennsylvania through the Fulbright scholarship program. Returning in the Netherlands, he studied Medicine at Utrecht University. He specialized in Pediatrics in Utrecht and Tilburg and continued in Neonatology in the Wilhelmina children’s hospital in Utrecht and the Isala clinics in Zwolle. He works as a consultant neonatologist in Utrecht. In 2015, he finished his Ph.D. in medicine with the title ‘Cardiac Biomarkers in neonatology’. Currently, he is investigating the possibilities of Big Data in neonatal medicine, in the Big Data for Small Babies project. First investigations are ongoing in the applied data analytic in medicine (ADAM) project. This project aims to build an early warning system and decision support tool for late-onset neonatal sepsis. Future research will be directed to bringing algorithms to clinical care in newborn medicine.
