The International Student Congress Of (bio)Medical Sciences, also known as ISCOMS, is one of the world’s leading student congresses in (bio)medical sciences. The 29th edition of ISCOMS will take place from the 8th until 10th of June 2022, at the University Medical Centre Groningen.
Last year’s congress took place digitally with a total of 646 participants from more than 65 different countries. In order to get an impression of the congress, you can watch the aftermovie.The main focus of this year’s congress will be on physical participation, but several elements will take place digitally as well.
Students can visit the congress both as a presenting and a non-presenting participant. ISCOMS offers a scientific programme with a pre-course on mastering your research and three congress days in which student presentation sessions (plenary, oral, and poster), interactive workshops, a patient lecture and a surgical operation will take place.
Furthermore, during the congress you can attend keynote lectures including keynote lectures given by the 2011 Nobel prize laureate, regental prof. Bruce Beutler MD, as well as prof. Jeffrey Friedman MD PhD, prof. Karl Diesseroth MD PhD, prof. Roel Nusse PhD and prof. Hanneke Schuitemaker PhD.
Besides this, students can explore PhD opportunities at the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) with the ISCOMS Research Fellowships (IRF). The IRF is a challenging two week programme, in which students may actively participate in research at one of the UMCG Research Institutes and gather a great deal of knowledge related to the topic of research. The IRF are available for presenting participants exclusively.
