Beschrijving

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. Both state-of-the-art fundamental (bio)medical research as well as translational and clinical research are discussed.

Programma

Oral diseases and conditions affect over 3.5 billion people worldwide and particularly affect poorer and marginalized groups. They are the 3rd most expensive diseases to treat in the EU and many EU citizens do not have access to quality oral care. For those who do not have access to affordable oral care, this poses serious safety threats as the exacerbation of oral diseases can lead to infections, emergency hospital admissions, or even death. Despite vast and multilateral damage to individuals and society, a low sense of urgency and a serious lack of synergistic problem solving persist. To this end, this talk will:

(1) Explain the relevance of oral health for people’s general health and wellbeing;

(2) Decipher the root causes of current oral health system failures;

(3) Delineate approaches for synergistic problem-solving.

  • Guest speaker: Prof. Stefan Listl (Radboud University Medical Center Nijmegen, The Netherlands)
  • Organiser: Department of Oral Health Sciences
  • Host: Prof. Barbara Janssens
