The Human Right to Health & Globalisation
Workshop given by: Dr. Jennifer Sellin
Max. number participants: 50
Description: The right of everyone to the enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, or in short the right to health, is a fundamental human right. It does not entail a right to be healthy, but encompasses a number of freedoms and entitlements to enable individuals to attain their highest standard of health possible. The right to health can be found in several international human rights treaties – such as the 1966 International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights with currently 167 state parties – and in many domestic constitutions.
Through the use of real-life cases, we will explore the link between human rights and health, especially in light of the process of globalisation.
Questions posed include: what is the value of a human rights-based approach to health? What does the right to health entail? Who are right holders and who are duty-bearers? What is the impact of globalisation on the right to health?

Organ-on-Chip Competition 2018
Workshop given by: Merln Maastricht University
The Organ on Chip Competition is an initiative directed for master students of biomedical sciences (and related fields) to create awareness of this type of technological platforms. We aim that through education, we’ll help preparing the new generation of scientists and medical players on the use (and further development) of novel lab-on-chip tools for diagnosis in complex cell culture models.
On this first edition, we are looking for 2-5 persons team to produce a video that explains to a broad audience what Organ-on-Chip is. You’ll have a mentor (PhD student) who will help the team to choose an organ/disease model and to select the technical platform you should focus for mimicking the physiological system of choice.
This workshop will bring you more information about the competition and clarify the competition procedure.
More info will be soon available at the competition website, to be announced.
