2017 - 2018

September 2017: Highlight college
(Renée, 1st year BSc Biomedische wetenschappen)
Lecture: "De grenzen van het onbekende: van mens tot molecuul")

September-October 2017: Frontiers in Medical Biology I (50521FB12Y)
(Renée, 3rd year BSc Biomedische Wetenschappen, course coordinator)
Frontiers in Medical Biology I was newly developed in 2015-2016 to let students address three of today's health challenges (cancer, aging and food for health) from different angles, starting with a solid foundation in developmental biology. Information for next years' students can be found here.

November-December 2017: Frontiers in Medical Biology II (50522FB12Y)
(Renée, 3rd year BSc Biomedische Wetenschappen, supervising research proposal writing)
Frontiers in Medical Biology II follows Frontiers in Medical Biology I.
