CONTRAST Young Talent Meetup

The CONTRAST Young Talent Program invites all young stroke investigators (PhD students and postdocs) to join for the first CONTRAST Young Talent Meetup on April 28th, 2021 at 17:00. At this informal and virtual meetup you will get the opportunity to pitch your research, meet your peers, and discuss the challenges and opportunities all young investigators face in their careers. 

At this meeting, Jeannette Hofmeijer will talk about how she successfully combines applied clinical work with fundamental studies. Jeannette Hofmeijer was trained as a neurologist and as intensive care physician at University Medical Center Utrecht. She obtained a PhD at the Biomedical MR Imaging and Spectroscopy Group of Utrecht University on the topic of edema formation in cerebral ischemia (2007). Since 2009, she combines her work as a vascular neurologist in Rijnstate Hospital (Arnhem) with a research position at University of Twente on a 50-50 basis. She was appointed professor of Translational Neurophysiology in 2019.

Hofmeijer combines state of the art clinical studies with experimental research in in vitro and in silico models. Her group constitutes of medical doctors, technical physicians, engineers, and biologists. She believes that combining applied clinical with fundamental studies contributes to identification of clinically relevant new knowledge and technologies that will ultimately improve diagnosis and treatment of patients with cerebral ischemia.

After a short Q&A session with Jeannette we will meet-and-mingle in smaller groups. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to connect with your fellow young stroke investigators!

Please register online here before April 20th.
