HotTopicsPepperThe goal of the Hot Topic sessions is to bring together researchers with shared interests in an informal setting. The format can change from session to session, but will typically involve a number of invited talks and, importantly, the opportunity for networking.

After 4 years, the BioSB Hot Topic sessions will be reinstalled and there is a new Hot Topic committee with:

  • Meike Wortel, UvA
  • Nikolaos Strepis, Erasmus MC
  • Aridaman Pandit, UMC Utrecht
  • Evert Bosdriesz, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam
  • Li-Ting Chen, UMC Utrecht

If you have any suggestions for interesting topics for upcoming sessions, please let us know. You can reach us at
