Another NCOH year of exciting and important research. It’s time for an update! You and all NCOH scientists are invited to join this year’s NCOH Science Café on 29 October 29 in Utrecht to get up to speed with the latest developments and meet fellow NCOH colleagues. Prevention and control of infectious diseases outbreaks are important societal challenges that require an integrated and balanced perspective in which human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental elements and considerations are integrated.
We are happy to announce that we will kick off the meeting with a keynote lecture by Prof. Sir Roy Anderson. He is Professor of Infectious Disease Epidemiology at Imperial College London, UK, and chair of the international NCOH Scientific Advisory Board. The title of his lecture is “Progress, and new challenges, in the control of the Neglected Tropical Diseases”. For the full programme, click here.
The meeting is aimed at researchers from our Partners and Associates that are involved in all the NCOH Strategic Research Themes. We particularly encourage young researchers (PhD students, postdocs) to join this meeting.
The event is free of charge, but registration is required.
“The NCOH will make it possible for us to realise far faster breakthroughs in the area of emerging infectious diseases and antibiotic resistance,” said Anton Pijpers on BNR news radio.
Together with his Royal Highness the King of the Netherlands, the Minister of Health, Welfare and Sport, Edith Schippers, and the State Secretary for Economic Affairs, Sharon Dijksma, visited UMC Utrecht on 6 October 2015. The visit focused on the approach to antibiotic resistance.
