Student Council Health and Life Sciences

Do you ever encounter problems in your study or do you have your own ideas about innovations or changes within your study or faculty? We are the Student Council Health and Life Sciences, the student representatives for HS, BMS and EPH (BA/MA) and we have a say in almost all levels within the university about innovations and changes in the studies, faculty and even within the university.
Every Thursday (except exam weeks), we have a walk-in hour from 12.30 to 13.30h where students can come to us with problems or ideas. We are located in the first room when you walk up the stairs on the footbridge (k2.497). In addition, you can also reach us via our website: www.sc-fhml.nl or like our Facebook page "Student Council Health & Life Sciences" to stay up to date.

 

TEFAF Symposium ‘The Exposome and Cancer Prevention’ and Prof. dr. Wild’s inaugural lecture
“Two-way” translational cancer research; an impetus for prevention, early detection and treatment.

March 15, 2018. Aula Maastricht University, Minderbroederberg 4 - 6, Maastricht.
Symposium: 13:30 - 16.00 hrs. Inaugural lecture: 16.30 hrs.

The exposome concept refers to the totality of environmental exposures from preconception onwards, and is a novel approach to studying the role of gene-environment interactions in the development of human disease.
During the symposium it will be discussed how ‘omic’ techniques can be used in life-course epidemiology to better understand the impact of environmental exposures on the development of cancer and other chronic diseases.
Challenges related to analysis of the large and complex data sets generated by these studies as well as the translation of the outcome into cancer prevention strategies will be addressed.

PROF. DR. CHRISTOPHER PAUL WILD
Director of the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC/WHO), is appointed as Extraordinary Professor on the TEFAF Oncology Chair 2018.
