Are you a (bio)medical student and interested in learning about the latest (bio)medical research?
The International Student Congress Of (bio)Medical Sciences (ISCOMS) is the world’s leading student congress in the field of (bio)medical sciences. ISCOMS is Europe’s largest biomedical student congress and attracts more participants each year. The 28th edition of ISCOMS will take place from the 8th until the 10th of June 2021.
The programme of the congress consists of a pre-course on improving your research skills and three congress days. During the three congress days, ISCOMS offers students the opportunity to present their research at a digital international platform. Additionally, students can take part in interactive workshops. On the last day of the congress, a living donor liver transplantation from an adult to a child will be shown and explained by one of the top surgeons of the UMCG.
Furthermore, during the congress there will be several keynote lectures from world renowned speakers including Lasker award winner 2016 and Nobel Prize winner 2019, Professor Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe MD who will give a Q&A about his research on oxygen sensing within cells. As well as Professor Ellen Roche PhD, her research focuses on applying innovative technologies to the development of cardiac devices.
The second day of the congress will have the day theme nutrition. During this day, several workshops, presentations and the keynote lectures will be connected to this theme. For example, nutrition specialist Professor Jaap Seidell will give a lecture about chronic diseases of affluence such as obesity and diabetes and their prevention with nutrition. In the afternoon, virologist Professor Marion Koopmans will be talking about foodborne viruses and the prevention and control of viral outbreaks.
On top of all this, we will host an exciting online social programme to give participants a chance to broaden their networks and get to know each other!
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ISCOMS 2021 will take place digitally. Since we have been working on our digital platform from the moment we started organising ISCOMS 2021, we can assure you that you will have the best possible experience on our digital platform.
