Making connections


Get up to speed with the latest developments and meet fellow NCOH colleagues 

Registration is now open 

The central theme of the event is 'Making connections' to provide the stage to the NCOH PhD students, who will compete for the NCOH Pitch Award through pitching their projects. In addition, we challenge four young or new principal investigators within NCOH to talk about their scientific research line(s), thereby introducing themselves and expanding their network.

The plenary lecture will be provided by Professor Nina van Sorge, who is working on Molecular pathogenesis of bacterial infections at UMC Amsterdam. Professor Hjalmar Bouma, who is dedicated to improving outcomes for sepsis patients. A speed-dating session is organized by our Young NCOH to further get acquainted with NCOH colleagues, and of course a closure with drinks for informal discussions.


Date: Thursday 9 November 
Time: 12:30 - 17:00 hours, with registration and lunch from 11:30 hours, and drinks from 17:00.  
Location: Van Swinderen Huys, Oude Boteringestraat 19, 9712 GC Groningen
