Multimedial Swammerdam presentation

Swammerdam lecture

Join the scientists and clinicians of Amsterdam UMC during this year’s online Amsterdam Neuroscience Annual Meeting on 2 October

Hilgo Bruining and his colleagues Klaus Linkenkaer-Hansen, Niels Cornelisse, and Bas Stunnenberg will provide and exciting multimedial Swammerdam presentation entitled: Transforming treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders into solid N-of-1

Current treatments for neurodevelopmental disorders are diagnosis-driven with unpredictable efficacy and side effects. Failed conventional trials cause increasing despair among patients and caregivers. A paradigm shift from one-size-fits-all to a tailored and personalized approach is urgently needed. This year’s Swammerdam presentation outlines how the NWA supported NewTDec* consortium takes on this challenge to inform, perform and monitor rational treatments at the patient ‘N-of-1’ level. The consortium exemplifies team science focused at the integration of various model-driven and data-driven approaches needed for precision therapy in neurodevelopmental disorders. This presentation will follow the transformation towards a N-of-1 approach supported by real life decisions and stories from the patients and caregiver’s perspective.
