How do we make sure that local research and innovations have real global impact? How can we create an environment that is conducive for interaction between academic, public and private partners here in Leiden, and most importantly, around the world? Only a few questions that will be discussed during the ‘Global Impact in Health’ symposium taking place on Monday the 30th of May from 10:00 – 16:30h. Read more about the symposium below and how you can join!
The Global Impact in Health symposium will officially open the European Life Sciences & Health Week (LSH Week). More information about the LSH Week can be found on the website of the Leiden Bio Science Park. The Global Impact in Health symposium will be organized by LUMC Global and multiple partners. During this hybrid symposium we will discuss the importance of global academic, public and private partnerships in solving the greatest global health threats of our time. We will for instance highlight themes surrounding drug- and vaccine development, cross-sector and cross-border collaborations in health data science. Due to limited space available onsite, we have decided to make it a hybrid event to allow all interested individuals to join!
The symposium is part of Leiden2022 and allows us to showcase all the beautiful work in Life Sciences & Health being done in Leiden. Leiden is internationally recognized as an essential hub for Life Sciences & Health with its large concentration of companies in the Leiden Bio Science Park and several internationally acclaimed research institutes, among which key player the Leiden University Medical Center.
This WINNER (Week of Indonesia Netherlands Education and Research) event is a follow-up of the Climate Adaptation Summit (CAS), January 2021, and explores forms of cooperation between and within nations to make climate adaptation work for everyone, with a focus on Indonesia and the Netherlands. We will build on the successful international establishment of the Adaptation Action Agenda with high level keynotes. Then, two forms of Indonesia – Netherlands collaboration in urban and rural areas will be highlighted. Finally, we dive into the prerequisites for successful climate adaptation in a session focused on a priority for both the Netherlands and Indonesia: water resilience.
Today’s health care system faces many challenges. The new interdisciplinary two years master PHM will train you to contribute to a more integrated health care system.
Health care faces ageing populations, rising health care costs, fragmented health care supply and advancing medical technologies and IT systems. Health care professionals will require new competences to meet these challenges in the current health care system. Population Health Management (PHM) is a broadly based response to the challenges and has emerged worldwide as an important strategy for health care
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is one of those hot topics that we all talk about, but at the same time we have a hard time grasping what AI really is and how it is implemented in our daily lives. And understandably so, AI is a very complex and extensive topic. Needless to say, implementing AI models is difficult, because so many (ethical) variables play a role for a successful, acceptable, and most of all beneficial implementation. It’s one of the most interesting fields to study and that’s exactly what LUMC PhD candidates Marieke van Buchem and Anne de Hond are doing, so that they can contribute to better validation and implementation of AI models in medical care. Their exchange to Stanford University helps them move forward with their research.
