Consortium on Individual Development


SAB meeting and Symposium 2015

On April 9 and 10, 2015 we organized our second Scientific Advisory Board (SAB) meeting and CID symposium.

On April 9, the Scientific Advisory Board and the Steering Committee discussed the progress of the consortium. Five members of the SAB were attending the meeting: Nick Martin (Queensland, Australia), Jay Belsky (Davis, U.S.A.), Mark Johnson (London, U.K.), B.J. Casey (New York, U.S.A.), and Lieve Page-Christiaens (UMC Utrecht, Netherlands). The meeting took place at Huize Molenaar, Utrecht. The SAB members were impressed by the scope of our study and the progress that has been made in getting it underway. There were valuable discussions to add more value to our research programs.

On April 10, we organized the second CID Symposium for all people interested and/or involved in CID (e.g. PhD students, postdocs, clinical staff, assistant/associate/full professors). Around 120 people attended the symposium held at Paushuize, Utrecht. We look back at a very fruitful day with talks of postdocs presenting their work within the consortium alongside three invited keynote speakers: Prof. Mark Johnson (London, U.K.), Prof. Marinus van IJzendoorn (Leiden, Netherlands), and Prof. B.J. Casey (New York, U.S.A.). Furthermore, there was a succesful poster session.
