Profile picture of dr. M.J.E. (Marjo) Campmans-Kuijpers


Clinical epidemiologist (MSc) with a broad background in nutrition. Specialised in nutrition and IBD. As an assistant professor, I am working for the department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology First, I designed and coordinate two clinical research projects with a focus on the nutritional status of high risk oncological patients undergoing 1. oesophagectomy or 2. cytoreductive surgery (CRS) and Hyperthermic IntraPEritoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC).Next, I am focussing on nutritional research for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Based on literature, I developed an anti-inflammatory diet for patients with inflammatory bowel disease (the Groningen Anti-Inflammatory Diet: GrAID). This diet can also be used in other immune mediated inflammatory diseases. Currently, we are testing this diet in the Vita_GrAID trial. In this large RCT we investigate 1. the effect of this anti-inflammatory diet, 2. a special coated vitamin capsule a large RCT and 3. a placebo capsule in patients with Crohn's disease and their healthy household members. As a clinical epidemiologist, I support other co-workers in their research questions. Besides, I teach "Malnutrition in Hospitals" in the master module "Nutrition in Medicine" and the curriculum of medical students, and "Nutrition and IBD"in the master of Pharmaceutical and Drug Innovation. Furthermore, I am involved in writing several international guidelines on nutrition and IBD.
