Waarom hebben mannen steeds slechter zaad? - Door dr. M. Dinkelman-Smit

De vruchtbaarheid van mannen neemt af. Hoe kan dat? In dit college van de Universiteit van Nederland vertelt uroloog Marij Dinkelman-Smit van het Erasmus MC wat er allemaal mis kan zijn met je zaad en hoe jouw gedrag van afgelopen weekend je sperma over drie maanden beïnvloedt.

EU Post (Erasmus Urology Post) - Episode 1 - By dr. J. L Boormans

The Erasmus MC Urothelial Cancer Research Group conducts research into the molecular biology of cancer of the urinary tract, aiming for a clear translation into the clinical applicability of the results of our research. Through translational research, we focus on:

1) early detection of urinary tract cancer

2) risk stratification of tumors of the urinary tract

3) patient selection for new and existing anti-cancer treatments

4) development of new targeted therapies


Dr. J.L. Boormans MD PhD says, “In this video, I give a brief overview of the disease and our ongoing research into this difficult to treat tumor type. If you would like to donate to support our research, you can!”
