  • Website survey

    Dear biologists,

  • Flower Power Cantus

    The yearly FYC Cantus is finally happening! On the 19th of April we will sing our hearts out while wearing the most beautiful Flower Power outfits!

The tickets will be sold via the website until the 11th of April and cost €17,36. The cantus will be held in De Professor and we will start at 21:30!

  • Hitchhiking competition

    You, in a group of 2 up to 3 will be given the starting location where a Kultuur member will meet you to provide you with the riddles necessary to decipher your next goal location. With the destination you can start the process of catching a ride all the way there.

    A list with the crazy-88 type activities you can complete on your way and their point rewards will be provided in Nijmegen before you depart. To log all these points, you need to be in touch with a Kultuur member, who will form a group chat with you and your group. This way you can log the points you accumulate for different modes of transport as well as the sideline activities. A riddle will lead you to find the Kultuur members waiting for you in the destination cities where they will give you clues and hints as to the location of your next destination.
    nce back in Nijmegen, all will be rewarded with a hefty picnic prepared by Kultuur, but the team with the most points wins an additional special prize:)!

  • Break Lecture: the great white plague

    We all know about the “black death” of medieval ages, but did you know that there is an even greater plague that still haunts us to this day? The great white plague, alias tuberculosis, plagued humans for thousands of years and it still kills ~1.5 million people each year.

  • Plant cutting exchange

    Looking for a way to decorate your room? Or are you already drowning in plants? Come to the plant cuttings exchange borrel by Marie Curie and BeeVee on the 10th of october from 16:30 onward in the North Canteen.

    Procedure

    During the plant cutting exchange, you can bring your own cuttings of plants, which you can then exchange for new ones. Depending on the plant that you bring (the size and rarity of the species), you will receive one, two or three coins per cutting.  From 17:30 onwards, these coins can then be used to “buy” new plants during the exchange part.

    As it is a plant cutting exchange, we would strongly encourage you to bring your own plants to be exchanged! It is however also possible to buy coins that you can exchange for cuttings if you don’t have any cuttings yourself (or forgot to bring plants). The extra plants are all donated and the money generated from that will be donated to the Waddenvereniging! It is handy if you bring cash for buying extra coins.

    While you are there, there is a very nice borrel organized that is the perfect chance to get to know people from the other study association and bond over your passion of plants. There will also be some games during the borrel that might help you get to know your fellow students.

    VERY IMPORTANT: bring a closable container/plastic bag/ pot with you, so you can transport your plant to and from the borrel!

    And for the ones who don’t know how to make plant cuttings yet, there are more than enough tutorials online. But here is already a helpful site (https://www.wikihow.com/Propagate-Your-Plants)

    Sparkling seas: marine bioluminescent phytoplankton
    The sea holds many ecological surprises. Perhaps, if you have been lucky, you were able to spot one of them at night: waves that light up when they reach the shore or tiny sparkles in the water when you walk or swim through it. These phenomena are caused by a cosmopolitan dinoflagellate species: Noctila scintillans. During this lecture, we will discover the bioluminescence of these dinoflagellates. What are the underlying physiological mechanisms and what do we know about its ecological functions? Furthermore, these sparkling creatures are also present in our Dutch coastal waters. Some tips and tricks for spotting them will be shared during the lecture as well.

    Dear fellow biologists,

  • Save the Date: Parents Day

    Hello biologist!

    In the next academic year ABO will again organize a parentsday to show your family what it is like to study biology at the Radboud university.
    The day will be completely free including coffee and lunch.

    To allow international students to inform their families early (and possibly book tickets early) we already announced the date of the parentsday. Saturday the 24th of February 2024.
    However, keep in mind that the actual programme is still being worked on and is thus subject to change. To give you an overview of what to expect we will explain what the day was like in previous years.

    In the morning (not 8:30, we value your sleep) we will get together for a cup of coffee and afterwards follow three (short) lectures of different topics in biology. These will have a break in between. After the lectures we will have lunch with everyone and we will start our afternoon programme.
    We will make groups for in the afternoon that will alternate between a tour around the huygens building, including the greenhouse, and several practicals. Last year we had a microbiology practical, an animal practical (with optional rat dissection!) and a plant practical.
    At the very end of the day we will close with a short borrel where we can chat about the day, socialize and have a drink.

    Dependent on how many sign ups we get there will be a limit on the amount of people you can bring. You can always bring at least two people. These can be your parents but everyone's situation is different and especially for internationals it can sometimes be hard to bring certain family members. So feel free to bring your aunt, uncle, sister, brother, best friend etc instead.

  • Neurological disorders in the Petri dish: A lunch lecture

    We will provide sandwiches for lunch for €2,-. If you want to join lunch please sign up on the website.

    If you only want to join the lecture without lunch you are also welcome to bring your own!

    As always, we will provide you with free coffee, tea, and cookies. Don't forget to bring your own mug.

    The sign-up deadline is the 27th of February.

    The human brain is arguably our most fascinating organ. Millions and millions of little cells form the multiple complex structures that regulate everything from our conscious and instinctive behaviours to our hormones and memory. However, a defect in these delicate systems can have dire consequences. In our upcoming Symci lunch lecture, Professor Dirk Schubert will tell you how neuroscientists produce human induced pluripotent stem cells (hIPSCs), let them differentiate into human neuronal-glial networks in a petri dish, and investigate the basic mechanisms leading to neurological disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders or schizophrenia, and finally translate all this into clinical knowledge.

    In this lunch talk, professor Schubert will briefly discuss the general challenges involved in first identifying high-risk genes for neurodevelopmental disorders and how to subsequently learn more about how such genes impact the function of human neuronal networks, and how to identify potential therapeutical targets.

    See you on the 28th!

  • Pretty in Pastel Themed Bioevening

  • Ooijpolder Bird Excursion

    Hello, all nature-lovers!

    On the 3rd of March 2024, VACUOLES is organising a bird excursion in the Ooijpolder. This excursion is done by none other than Constant Swinkels, one of the organisers and lecturers of the 1st year course Biodiversity! Together we'll go on a nice walk through the Ooijpolder and spot the pretty birds that are found here.

    The excursion starts at 11:00 at the Hollandsch-Duitsch Gemaal (Dijkgraaf van Wijckweg 4, 6522 KS Nijmegen) and should take a few hours. Also feel free to bring parents, friends, and other non-BeeVee people to this lovely excursion!

    We will provide lunch (2 euros for members, 3 euros for non-members). If you would like to join the lunch you can indicate so in the sign-up form above. Please also fill it in if you don't want lunch but are still coming. This way we know how many people to expect and you'll receive a reminder in your mail. Unfortunately, there are no more spots left.

    Bring binoculars (if you have them), good shoes and of course a lot of bird-enthusiasm! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact VACUOLES.

    See you there!

  • Batavierenrace

    On the 24th of May the annual Batavierenrace will once again take place. The Bata is the largest relay race in the world, with nearly 10 000 yearly participants, all of which are students. The race starts in Nijmegen and from there each team will run 175 kilometers, divided over 25 courses, all the way to Enschede.

    Together with our fellow biologists, we will once again participate as our own team: Bellis Perennis. Each participant will run a course, most of which are around 5 to 8 km. When signing up, you also choose a preferred distance based on how much you would like to run. 

    Because we will be using a small van to get everyone to their right starting point, we will also be needing 3 drivers. So, if you don’t like running but still want to participate, you can sign up as a driver. 

    When we arrive in Eschede the Batavieren Festival will be waiting for us. This is the largest student party in the Netherlands. Together with our team we will be staying on the University Campus, and go to the festival together to celebrate making it all the way to Enschede.

    The most important aspect of the Bata is to have fun. You don’t need to be an olympic athlete to compete, and the running itself is only a small part of the Bata. Cheering each other on, the team spirit, and going to the festival together is what makes the Bata such a unique experience. So if you want to participate, you can sign up via the google form.

    If you want to get more of an idea of what the Bata is like, you can also check the 2023 aftermovie.
