Lunch Lecture

Dear members,

It’s almost time for our annual lunch lecture again! On the 21st of September we have organized a very interesting speaker for you:

Dr Febe van Maldegem is group leader in the Department of Molecular Cell Biology & Immunology. Her work focusses on the complex role of the tumour microenvironment in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), crucial for mediating anti-tumour immunity, but more frequently imposing resistance to therapy. She wil tell you all there is to know about “The tumour microenvironment: not just a bag of cells.” Non-cancer cells infiltrating the tumour are thought to strongly influence cancer progression and responses to therapy. But how do they influence each other? Deciphering the local cellular neighbourghoods may be the key to understanding.

The lecture will take place at WN-C121 and will be from 12:45 till 13:30. Furthermore we will provide you with a delicious FREE lunch so you don’t want to miss this. Interested yet? sign up through this link (the first 40 will receive a free lunch so be quick!) 

Looping Louie Tournament

The fun tradition of the annual Looping Louie competition is coming soon again! You’ll get the opportunity to show off with your teammate and the best team will win a prize. This fun game is very simple: use Louie the pilot to knock down the chickens of your opponent and try to protect your own!

Sign you and your teammate up at the borrel from 17:00 and of course a fun team name can’t be missed!

See you there!
Love, the Spelcie

Date: Wednesday 14th of September
Time: from 18:00

It takes place on the 29th and 30th of April and de 1st of May, where we will run from Nijmegen to Enschede. After the finish you will feel like a true hero and will be rewarded with a drink at the biggest student party of all time. So be sure to sign up quickly at!!!
Lots of love,
The Sportcie


Aahhwoooooo! Full moon rising, the cold air and the silent nights. They’re coming. The bloodthirsty
werewolves are drawing nigh. Is it you, your friend or one of your other “innocent” colleagues? Who
knows? How many will fall until the werewolves are done feasting? Eliminate the hungry beasts and
save the village.
But wait, not every innocent villager is as simple as they seem. Some might shoot, curse or make
others fall in love whilst the mystery remains unsolved. Are you up to the task and will you save the
town of Miller’s Hollow?

Come and join the Spelcie on Wednesday the 17th for a classic game of Werewolves! There is going
to be a lot of mystery and of course drinks! Sign up now through the link or you can join us on the
day of the event!

Date: 9th of March
Price: free to join, but bring cash for drinks
