Description

The LIMSC will take place from March 16th until March 20th 2011, hosted by the Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC). The conference offers medical and biomedical students worldwide the opportunity to present their research, to participate in various workshops, to be enlightened by prominent guest speakers and to engage in networking with fellow international students. At the meeting in 2009, we welcomed over 600 students from more than 50 different countries.

LIMSC welcomed distinguished speakers in the previous years, including: Prof. Peter Doherty, Prof. Robert Weinberg, Prof. Margaret Stanley, Prof. Richard K. Reznick, Prof. Anthony Cerami and Prof. Ravinder Maini.

The inventive LUMC and the oldest university of The Netherlands (founded in 1575) are the perfect combination for an innovative international student conference. Furthermore Leiden is a typical Dutch city with a picturesque historical city center, located between Amsterdam and The Hague. Leiden is situated in the middle of the flower bulb region, which will be in bloom during the conference days.
