Hello! My name is Marlou and I am a second year medical student at Leiden University. I will be the treasurer of the LIMSC organizing committee 2019, therefore I will be responsible for all financiaI affairs. I am really looking forward to work together with the other OC members. We are all really motivated and excited to make LIMSC 2019 an unforgettable experience for all participants!
Hi everyone! I am Isobel Bowring, the new secretary for LIMSC 2019. I am half British and half Dutch, and currently in my first year of medicine. With an international background, I hope to make the upcoming conference as enjoyable and interlinked as possible for all participants. In my role as secretary, I will be involved mostly with the communications and registration process. The LIMSC organising committee, consisting of ten students, has already started with the preparations. We are looking forward to seeing you at the next LIMSC conference - where people and knowledge come together!
As you may have noticed we have changed our banner and introduced our president. We are very proud to be organising the 11th edition of LIMSC! We will be introducing the new OC members in the following weeks. Next week, Isobel, our new secretary will be introducing herself to all of you.
I am Koen Wijsman, the new President of the LIMSC 2019 Organising Committee! For those of you who are not yet familiar with LIMSC: the Leiden International (bio)Medical Student Conference is a five-day event with about 800 participants of more than 60 different nationalities, which makes it the largest biannual student conference in the world. LIMSC allows students to present their research and to get new insights into science. Besides the scientific program, a lot of exciting social activities are being organised to give the participants the opportunity to get to know each other, the Netherlands and the Dutch culture. The next edition of LIMSC will be organised from the 13th until the 17th of March 2019, so save the date. I am looking forward to seeing all of your interesting research projects!

Last week the sad news reached us that Prof. Jon van Rood has passed away. Our condolences go to his family and friends. His death is a great loss to the scientific world. Not only was Prof. Jon van Rood an excellent researcher, but he was an inspiration to many people. In his last months, he inspired hundreds of students with his knowledge and experience with a stimulating talk he gave at the 10th edition of LIMSC in March 2017. We deeply thank him for his effort and enthusiasm and for sharing his wisdom with the new generation of researchers in his last months. May he rest in peace.
Thank you all for your warm applause after the performance! The act was choreographed and performed by two professional dancers, Robert Alexander Prein and Mayke van Veldhuizen. Robert graduated as a Biomedical scientist at the University of Leiden himself in 2011 before starting a career in theatre. Both dancers travel the world to perform and collaborate on an international scale and now collaborated to create this act especially for LIMSC. Would you like to book them for your own upcoming event or would you just like to follow their future initiatives? Then please visit www.robert-alexander.eu/dans-project for more information! Here a short trailer of the dance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0j41W4FUV8! The full video recording of the dance at LIMSC will follow shortly!
