Another day, more bachelor internship presentations, and cake!

So, today we  see more student presentations. Lots of talks about SNPs (which are not related to our PhD unfortunately); these BSc students are on their way to becoming MSc students. Two of the talks are related to obesity, a growing epidemic. However, the reasons why certain people become obese, can be caused by small changes in genes (among others, off course).

Also, an important Adverse Outcome Pathway(AOP) Telcon took place this morning, in which we proposed an AOP-development strategy. The discussion was very fruitful and the partners of EU-ToxRisk were very positive about the strategy proposal. Soon we will kick off the AOP development, in which BiGCaT will have a supervising and organizing role in the process.

On the sidenote, our colleague made a delicious blackberry cheescake. F is famous for her cakes, so we were lucky that we could grab the last couple of slices. We hope that the cake will be digested in a metabolically sound way, not stored as fat-cells, so we are not participating in the obesity epidemic.
