Floris Wuyts is a professor of Medical Physics, Physics and Biostatistics at the University of Antwerp, Belgium. He works in an otolaryngology department, at the European Institute for ORL-HNS-SBS department of the St Augustinus Hospital in Antwerp. He is tenure professor at the University of Antwerp and currently teaches Medical Physics, Physics and Biostatistics, as well as selected topics at the courses of neuroscience and cardiology. Since 2011, he teaches at King’s College in London in the Master course on Space Physiology and Health. His team was one of the first to unravel the link between the autonomous system and the vestibular system in humans.
Also, they were the first to show the impact of spaceflight on the human brain with the use of advanced MRI methods providing very innovative insights into the human brain functioning. Wuyts created a tool – the SO STONED history taking – an example of pattern recognition methods and clinical practice. He is also a member of 2 Barany Society committees for standardisation of vestibular diagnoses.
