Posters

The CMB is setting up a Open Access Poster Portal for the UMCG.
The intension is to deposit:

  • scientific posters and presentations slides of conferences held in the UMCG
  • presentation slides or posters by UMCG staff at other Conferences
  • scientific posters that are exposed in the hallways of the UMCG already

Here is what we have achieved so far:

University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG)
Posters Presentations | UMCG Conferences | UMCG Research | CMB Poster Project | UMCG Repositories 

More information about the Open Access UMCG Poster Portal
See the presentation about the Poster Portal Project on YouTube! 

ISCOMS Poster Portal
The first Conference using the F1000 facilities for depositing it’s posters and slides will be :

  • ISCOMS : The International Student Congress of (bio)Medical Sciences
    You can see clearly now how a branded UMCG Conference Portal with F1000 would look like. Right now there is only just one poster there, but it is an award-winning one of ISCOMS 2011!.

    All presenters at ISCOMS 2012 will be asked to deposit their posters and slides to this Portal to make sure they will be visible for those who can not attend the conference.

    Together with F1000 and in close contact with ISCOMS the CMB make this portal possible. It is a first step in hopefully more UMCG conferences using these free Conference facilities, and promoting Open Access at the same time, by putting online posters and slides.
    Other International Conferences at UMCG

Currently there 17 staff members, within the University of Groningen community “working”as reviewers, so called “Faculty”

The F1000 Faculty Members of the UMCG and University of Groningen are:

BIOGRAPHY

Alain Kalmar is an Associate Faculty Member who works with Anthony Absalom to evaluate the literature relevant to their research interests.EDUCATION:
2011 PhD, University Medical Centre GroningenRESEARCH PROJECT:
New surgical treatment options, such as endoscopic neurosurgery, require adequate monitoring and management of the intracranial pressure, cerebral oxygenation and homeostasis. In his PhD thesis a new methodology is described that significantly improves perioperative monitoring.Endoscopic neurosurgical procedures may result in increased intracranial pressure and acute hemodynamic effects. It was shown that the initial phase of this so called Cushing reflex consists of a combination of hypertension and tachycardia. These clinical findings were confirmed in a rat-model of endoscopic neurosurgery, which resulted in the investigation of various methods to monitor the Cushing reflex. The newly developed method is significantly more precise as compared to the present approach.

– Nature GeneticsCURRENT POSITION
Jana van Vliet-Ostaptchouk is a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Endocrinology (headed by Professor Bruce Wolffenbuttel) with a 2nd affiliation at the Department of Epidemiology (Professor Harold Snieder’s group), at the University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands.EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND
Jana van Vliet obtained her MSc degree in Physiology at Novosibirsk State University, Russia (1995). Her Master’s thesis under the supervision of Professor Arkady L Markel (Institute of Cytology and Genetics, Russian Academy of Science, Novosibirsk) was based on research on the genetics of essential hypertension. In 2010, she obtained a PhD degree at the University Medical Center Groningen, the Netherlands. The project ‘Revealing the genetic roots of obesity and type 2 diabetes’ was supervised by Professor Marten Hofker and Professor Cisca Wijmenga. In that same year Jana received a Rubicon fellowship from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research to work as a visiting scientist at Dr Ruth Loos’ group at the MRC Epidemiology Unit in Cambridge, UK. The research is focused on the examination of the pleiotropic effects of the currently established obesity-susceptibility loci on metabolic traits.RESEARCH AREA:
Jana van Vliet is a human geneticist with specific expertise in obesity and type 2 diabetes.RESEARCH INTERESTS
The complex nature of obesity and type 2 diabetes is the main scientific interest of Jana van Vliet. In her current research she investigates how environmental factors together with genetic factors influence the disease etiology with a particular interest in gene-gene and gene-environmental interactions. A focus of this latter objective is to study whether DNA methylation changes may have important epigenetic mechanisms linking the responses to environmental factors and obesity. These questions are addressed within the National Consortium of Healthy Aging using LifeLines data, a large three-generations longitudinal population-based study, and through international collaborations.

BIOGRAPHY

ACADEMIC POSITION:
In November 2006 he became head of the Genetic Epidemiology and Bioinformatics Unit in the Department of Epidemiology, University Medical Center Groningen.EDUCATION AND BACKGROUND:
He did an MSc in exercise physiology and psychology at the VU University, Amsterdam, and his PhD project on the ‘Genetic epidemiology of risk factors of cardiovascular disease. A study of middle-aged twins’ was supervised by Lorenz van Doornen (psychophysiology) and Dorret Boomsma (behavior genetics) at the VU University and completed in 1996. He then joined Tim Spector’s group at the Twin Research & Genetic Epidemiology Unit, St Thomas’ Hospital, London, to study the genetic epidemiology of common complex traits with a main focus on cardiovascular disease and making use of linkage and association approaches. In October 2000 he moved to the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Georgia, where he joined Frank Treiber’s multidisciplinary research institute (the Georgia Prevention Institute) to study genetic risk factors in interaction with behavioral and environmental antecedents of cardiovascular disease in youth. There he worked on a fifteen year longitudinal cohort study in Georgia. He was awarded tenure on 1 July 2005, and in December 2005 he was granted a joint appointment at the Department of Biostatistics.FUNDING:
His work has been funded by the British and American Heart Foundations, The Wellcome Trust, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NIH).RESEARCH AREA:

Bert Poolman – F1000 Faculty Member (since 29 October 2010)

Department of Biochemistry, University of Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands

BIOGRAPHY

ACADEMIC POSITION:
Bert Poolman is Professor in Biochemistry and Program Director of the Centre for Synthetic Biology.

MEMBERSHIPS:
He is a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW).

RESEARCH INTERESTS:
His research focuses on the elucidation of the mechanisms by which signals are transduced and small molecules are translocated across cellular membranes. Cells are reengineered for the production of correctly folded membrane proteins, and methods are developed to reconstitute complex molecular assemblies in synthetic membranes and to analyze their functional and structural properties. The in vitro mechanistic studies are used to strengthen in vivo physiological measurements and vice versa.

Research topics in his group include:
(i) the mechanisms of translocation catalysis by ATP-binding cassette transporters;
(ii) the molecular basis of cell volume regulation, including a comprehensive understanding of the role of lipid-protein interactions, (macro)molecular crowding and other generic physicochemical factors in transmembrane signaling and transport; and
(iii) membrane proteomics with a focus on nuclear and vacuolar membranes and the basis for molecule transport through the nuclear pore complex.
