You are invited to join us at TPI-Helpathon #5, organized by Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and the TPI-Helpathon team. You will be participating in a unique and inspirational international collaborative event led by the questions of Diederik Kuster and Rick Meijer, both from the Amsterdam UMC/VUmc, Netherlands. These two very enthusiastic and committed researchers from the Amsterdam UMC/VUmc, Netherlands, are so brave to share their research questions with us, aiming to take science one step further with your help.
The Helpathon starts 13th October at 13h00 and ends 24 hours later 14th October at 13h00. The setting is hybrid. You can join us online or real life at the VU campus in Amsterdam. If you want to join us on campus, please let us know asap, due to corona restrictions we have limited spaces available.
Diederik Kuster, is a scientist working on hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and is looking for help in developing a non-animal model for metabolic stress, linked to obesity, which in turn has an effect on the heart/muscle cell function.
Rick Meijer, is a clinician specialized in vascular medicine, and wants to personalize preventative treatment for his diabetes patients. Rick is looking for help in finding the best suitable human models for his research on the effect of leucine on muscle blood flow.
