Wetenschappelijke Adviesraad 2020

06 nov 2020

Donderdag 5 en vrijdag 6 november 2020 komt de Wetenschappelijke Adviesraad bijeen. Dat ziet er dit jaar anders uit dan andere jaren.

Corona-proof. Gelukkig kunnen we op deze manier de subsidieronde wel door laten gaan en de jaarlijkse subsidies toekennen. Dit is het laatste jaar voor WAR lid Prof. dr. Wit. Nieuw in de adviesraad zijn Prof. dr. de Groot en Prof. dr. Vrijheid.

Prof. dr. de Groot is a full professor at the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences. He is connected to the Infectious diseases and global health theme and to the Laboratory Medicine department.

Prof. dr. Vrijheid is Research Professor at the Global Health Institute (ISGlobal) in Barcelona, Spain. She previously held affiliations at the International Agency for Research on Cancer, Lyon, and at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Her research focuses on the effects of environmental exposures on child health and development. Most recently, she has spearheaded the push to collect better and more complete data on multiple exposures, molecular pathways, and health outcomes during early life critical periods as leader of the HELIX (“Building the Human Early Life Exposome”) project, which involves birth cohorts in 6 European countries and was funded by EC FP7. She has further been instrumental in the building of a network of birth cohorts in Europe (under the CHICOS and ENRIECO projects), resulting in a framework for data sharing and harmonization across more than 30 European birth cohorts.

Uiterlijk 31 december 2020 wordt de uitslag bekend gemaakt!
