3 EMC NIHES A - Assessment, Treatment and Translational Research in Recontructive Surgery Programme in brief design The program `Assessment, Treatment and Translational Research in Reconstructive Surgery relates to research questions derived from three main patient groups: upper extremity disorders, craniofacial disorders and patients requiring reconstructions after oncological resection. Furthermore wound healing plays an important role in reconstructive surgery. Within these three patient groups, we share the same three research topics, which are often interrelated. 1) Development and evaluation of innovative clinical interventions, either in randomized or cohort studies. 2) Development and application of new assessment tools, such as new imaging techniques and measurement tools to be used for both diagnosis and outcome assessment. 3) Development and evaluation of innovative experimental interventions with a close relation to the clinic. Most clinical and translational research is multidisciplinary, resulting in collaboration with a large number of clinical and preclinical departments.

7 EMC NIHES Epidemiology of diseases Programme in brief design This program includes scientific research in cardiovascular epidemiology, neuroepidemiology and ophthalmologic epidemiology. Cardiovascular epidemiologic research focuses on the determinants of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease in the elderly, and on cardiovascular diseases in women. The research is based on the Rotterdam Study and addresses inflammation markers and hemostasis as determinants of cardiovascular diseases in the elderly, and the effects of menopause, endogenous hormones and hormone replacement therapy in women. Neuroepidemiologic research focuses on the etiology of neurodegenerative and cerebrovascular diseases, including dementia and Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, stroke and cerebral white matter lesions. The research emphasizes the role of vascular factors in the etiology of these diseases, with use of state of the art neuroimaging techniques. Ophthalmological epidemiologic research focuses on determinants of macula degeneration and glaucoma. The emphasis is on the putative role of genetic factors and vascular factors in etiology of these diseases.
