Christiaan Vinkers (born in 1980) studied Pharmacy, Law and Medicine, making him truly multitalented.

In addition to his work as a clinical psychiatrist at UMC Utrecht, he also heads a productive line of research focusing on the factors that influence the brain’s stress vulnerability and resilience. For example, he has demonstrated that stress can increase the risk of psychiatric and other disorders and identified biological factors that play a role. Vinkers is eager to make science accessible to the general public and has set up the Dutch website to explore topics in which psychiatry plays a role.
