In Praise of Medicine

‘In Praise of Medicine’ is the title of a series of annual public lectures given by Erasmus MC staff on topics in medical science.

In Praise of Medicine 2019

This year’s ‘In Praise of Medicine’ lecture will be delivered at the Doelen conference centre in Rotterdam on Friday 4 October 2019. Three leading researchers from the Erasmus MC and Delft University of Technology will explain how fundamental molecular research on a nano scale can help us understand disease, improve diagnostics and treat patients.
  • Roland Kanaar (Erasmus MC) is studying the way in which cells repair damaged DNA.
  • Marileen Dogterom (Delft University of Technology) is trying to improve our understanding of cells by replicating cell growth step by step.
  • Ron Mathijssen (Erasmus MC) uses the findings of fundamental research to make medicinal drugs more effective and give patients customised treatment.

The lectures will be interspersed with performances by students from Codarts Rotterdam, an international university of applied sciences offering high-level professional courses in music, dance and circus arts. 


It is currently not possible to sign up. Information on the next edition of In Praise of Medicine will be made available here as soon as possible.
