Smoothie operator

After a full day with posters, pitches, a nursing and supervision event and an amazing talkshow, it’s only natural for people to get thirsty. Of course, there will be drinks at the end of the afternoon to conclude the Research Day. But in the meantime there are… smoothies!

The talkshow must go on

It's time to talk about research! During the talkshow 'Let's talk about Research', with host Hester den Ruijter, sidekick Rik Verheijden and table host Sander van der Laan, typical science topics will be brought to the table.  Special attention will be given to fundamental research and how we can translate scientific findings to the clinic - and as a bonus, some of UMC Utrecht's greatest talents will share their stories of science!

And the winners are…

It’s a wrap! The poster pitches have concluded. But who managed to impress the jury the most? Who made the most original, medically interesting and/or spirited pitch? And the winners are...

*drum roll*

Grace Keane and Rob van Rooij!

So what was their pitch about? Grace: ”When you’re in a multicenter trial, understanding the variability in imaging is a massively important step. Our research demonstrated the importance of this.”

A sea of posters

Poster presentations are normal for researchers, but today they can share them with visitors and colleagues. Maybe it will lead to interesting questions or new perspectives!

Good coffee breeds good research

Just like any other day, many researchers arrive at work quite early. But this is no ordinary day! Today is the very first Research Day at UMC Utrecht, a day that revolves around our wonderful research and researchers. But first: free coffee!
