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.
How do the earliest loading events in life (e.g. kicking in the womb and attainment of locomotion in infancy) shape our growing? In other words: how do muscles shape the pre- and postnatal skeleton?
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.
