Milan Sonneveld is a staff Gastroenterologist & Hepatologist and Epidemiologist at the department of Gastroenterology & Hepatology of the Erasmus MC University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He studied Medicine at the Erasmus University in Rotterdam and was trained as an epidemiologist at the Netherlands Insitute for Health Sciences (NIHES) and Harvard School of Public Health. He subsequently acquired a PhD for his thesis entitled ‘Host and Viral Predictors of Response to Antiviral Therapy in Chronic Hepatitis B’. After completing his Gastroenterology & Hepatology residencies at the Ikazia Hospital and the Erasmus MC University Medical Center he obtained a staff position at the Erasmus MC in 2021.
His research aims to facilitate personalized healthcare for patients with chronic hepatitis B through the study of individualized antiviral treatment strategies and identification of predictors of long-term adverse clinical outcomes. He is the principal investigator of several international research consortia and coordinator of the Dutch HBV management guideline (www.HBVRichtsnoer.nl).
