ESPRi symposium

Preventie van Ernstige Psychische Aandoeningen: hoe gaan we dat doen?


Ernstige Psychische Aandoeningen (EPA) ontstaan in de adolescentie en hebben vaak een langdurig karakter. Dat willen we voorkomen. We gaan werken aan preventie van EPA in de jeugd en proberen herstel van EPA te bevorderen. Maar hoe kunnen we dit doen en wat werkt?

Het belooft een interessant en levendig symposium te worden met presentaties van nieuw onderzoek en ideeën. Aansluitend aan de presentaties vindt er een preventie-debat plaats, waarbij de vraag 'wat kunnen we doen om de transitie naar EPA te voorkomen?' centraal staat.

Noteert u alvast de datum. Het programma voor de middag vindt u in picture_as_pdf de flyer. De toegang is gratis.


Accreditatie wordt aangevraagd voor Psychiaters, Psychologen en Verpleegkundig Specialisten.
U bent van harte welkom.

It is a great pleasure to announce the following recognitions of achievement of Steven Kushner

Posted by Admin on August 2018
Steven Kushner First, Steven has been elected as Chair of the Dutch Society for Neuroscience, starting 1 July 2018. A true honor to run the nations Neuroscience!

Second: the Dean has invited Steven to be a member of the Research Council of the Erasmus MC.
From the letter of the Dean: 'On 19th February, the Board of Directors approved a proposal for setting-up a new Research Council as an independent advisory committee to the Dean. The Research Council will have the responsibility for closely following internal and external research (policy) developments and advising on their opportunities and possible consequences for Erasmus MC. Discussion topics within the Research Council include: 1) (inter)national and novel developments in science, 2) funding of research, 3) organization and evaluation of research, 4) research infrastructure, 5) local, national and international strategic research alliances, and 6) opportunities for increasing societal impact of research'.
Steven will represent 'Thema Hersenen & Zintuigen' in the Research Council.

'Human iPSC models of rare familial depression'

Posted by Admin on August 2018
Femke de Vrij We are pleased to inform you that Femke de Vrij has been granted an Erasmus MC Human Disease Model Award (HDMA) for her project entitled 'Human iPSC models of rare familial depression'.

Project summary: The project is a collaboration with co-applicant Najaf Amin of the department of Epidemiology. The award grants 250.000 euro to further study a depression-linked genetic variant in the RCL1 gene based on Femke’s recent paper in Molecular Psychiatry, using induced pluripotent stem cell technology. By focusing on rare familial depression, Femke hopes that this approach will lead to novel insights in the underlying biology of RCL1-associated depression.

With a population of over 600,000, Rotterdam is the second largest city in the Netherlands and the centre of the Rotterdam-The Hague metropolis. It's famous for its port, one of the biggest in Europe. The River Maas runs through our 'skyscraper city' with its innovative architecture. Behind the modern skyline, you'll find a nice, even 'cosy' historic city centre.
