Uitgebreide vaknaam BBB 1: From bench to bedside and back 1
Leerdoelen Students have knowledge about:
- The research performed within the UMCG/GRIP and ongoing collaborations with UMCG partner universities including Uppsala Universitet (UU), Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), Universidad de Antioquia (UDEA), and Universidade de São Paulo (USP).
- The quality parameters of a researcher (Principle Investigator), including impact-factor, H-factor, and ranking of journals in a specific field.

Students are able to:
- Evaluate the quality of a research group and individual researchers in an international context.
- Motivate the top-3 research projects at UMCG/GRIP and partner universities based on the quality analysis.
- Communicate their choices well (in an oral and written manner).
- Interview researchers, both in person and via telephone conferences.
- Build their international professional network.
Omschrijving With respect to BBB1, the goals are to obtain an overview of the research (groups) and PIs within the UMCG/GRIP, to get acquainted with and select good research practice, to help to choose the topic of a possible first/second internship and to compare fundamental research with translational research. The PIs must be grouped by Bench (fundamental researchers), Bedside (patient-related research) and Back (translational research). To be able to make this division the students should also identify and screen for patents, links with companies and generation of start-ups. The students have to write a report and give an oral presentation describing their analysis, motivation and preferences for Research Project I. Next to this, the students present their findings at the last day of the Spring school meeting to PIs from all three universities.
