From molecule to human to society and back

Is the healthcare provided in Rotterdam the same as in a village? How can we detect arteriosclerosis at an early stage? How are creativity and psychiatric disorders connected? How does air pollution affect unborn children? Erasmus MC and Erasmus School of Health Policy & Management work together on societal issues concerning health. The forces of clinical science, health science and biomedical science are combined here.
