One of the Amsterdam UMC ambitions is to perform research with a high Societal Impact and Relevance. Furthermore, many of our researchers are already involved in creating Societal Impact. To encourage and recognize Societal Impact, we have the Amsterdam UMC Societal Impact Award. This award is presented to the Amsterdam UMC reseacher with relevant societal impact in the academic year of 2018/2019. You can help to decide who will become the Societal Impact Award winner of 2019.

Dr. Leo Geeraedts from the surgery department with his training of bystanders to stop the bleeding, in case of severe trauma
Prof. Leonard Hofstra from the cardiology department with his Spangas project
