Resit booking

Exam booking for a test in current academic year (resit)
You will be booked automatically for the resit in one of our resit periods. You may check our calenders to find out which modules can be retaken and when: https://intranet.maastrichtuniversity.nl/nl/fhml-studenten/studieverloop/wanneer-wat
As of one week before the resit test takes place, you can check in Student Portal if you are booked correctly: Student Portal > My Courses > More actions. The test will also be visible in your time table.

Exam booking for a test from a previous academic year (exam only)
All students who have not passed the test for this module in a previous academic year, will be booked automatically for the test during the regular block period. You will be enrolled in the new course in Canvas but not scheduled for a tutorial group and other educational activities. If you do not wish to participate in this test at the end of the regular block period please de-register via askFHML.

Resit date: 15-2-2024

Course information

Description: EN:

The course teaches to apply core biomedical skills, methods and techniques in determining, analysis, designing interventions and preventative strategies targeting pathological and age-related cellular processes. 

 Core biomedical techniques are utilized to address ageing and age-related diseases:

  • biomedical imaging
  • neurological
  • regenerative medicine
  • inflammation and pathophysiology
  • genetics and genomics
  • nutrition, physical activity and metabolism

  1. ILO1. Teach students hallmarks of ageing and the concept of ageing as a disease 

    ILO2. Familiarize students with the whole spectrum of interventions to postpone, delay and alleviate detrimental changes associated with ageing

    ILO3. Gain understanding of the following hallmarks of ageing that contribute to loss of homeostasis and determine the ageing process, as well as interconnections between the different types of damage and compensatory responses:

    • immuno-ageing and immunosenescence• neurodegenerative disorders• cancer development• (epi-)genetic alterations, genomic instability and telomere attrition • deregulated nutrient sensing• cellular senescence and stem cell exhaustion

    ILO4. Apply core biomedical skills to determine, analyse, design interventions and preventative strategies addressing hallmarks of ageing and age-related disorders from six core biomedical perspectives:

    • biomedical imaging

    • nutrition, physical activity and metabolism 

    • neuromodulation

    • regenerative medicine

    • inflammation and pathophysiology

    • genetics and genomics
