As part of the expanding Eureka network and regional activities, Eureka offers a summer school focused on TM issues in rare and orphan paediatric diseases. This summer school has so far been organized in corporation with the Science in transition team from partner UMC Utrecht.
The summer school is an introductory experience for students with an emerging interest in translational medicine. Within an interactive and student-driven learning context, the curriculum introduces some principles of translational medicine within the context of rare and orphan paediatric diseases and provide accordingly some of the skills needed to navigate the Translational Medicine pathway effectively in this area.
Unlike the Eureka certificate course, the summer school is meant for a more junior audience such as late masters students and PhD students. The core faculty of the summer school is provided by Eureka local faculty and alumni. The summer school may be offered at other hubs using the same topic specific content.
