As a researcher, it is becoming more important to look beyond the borders of your area of expertise. Interdisciplinary collaboration can provide new insights to pressing research questions.

With this in mind, the Scientific Research Committee and the departments of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences organise 'Interdisciplinary Medical & Health Seminars' together.

This annual seminar series consists of 10 thematic lectures with attention to complementarity between different research areas and their applications. Both state-of-the-art fundamental (bio)medical research as well as translational and clinical research are discussed.

To ensure that the lectures are representative for the diversity of research within the faculty, each department chooses one international top speaker.


Focusing on patient-centred health care means that patients are more involved in decisions about their health and medical care. But has this same occurred in medical and health sciences research? In this talk, this will be explored further, particularly in relation to those on the fringes of our society.

  • Guest speaker: Prof. Claire Collins (Irish College of General Practitioners, Dublin, Ireland)
  • Organiser: Department of Public Health and Primary Care
  • Host: Prof. Sara Willems


The event is open for master thesis and Honours Programme students, (post)doctoral researchers, professors, clinicians (for physicians accreditation will be requested) and everyone with an interest for fundamental (bio) medical research as well as translational and clinical research.

Access is free.
