The thirteenth edition of RAMS!

The thirteenth edition is now available! From now on you can read this edition
online. Download the PDF or get it in real life at the medical faculty building (in the bookshelf  near the stairs at the entrance or at the study square).
In this edition you can read about the effects of physical exercise and some articles that are intertwined with the topic of this year’s Summer School, which focuses on cardiology. Curious what else you can find in our thirteenth edition? Grab your RAMS from the bookshelfs and enjoy reading this edition!
We would like to invite you to the RAMS lustrum celebration on the 12th of July 2019 from 9 pm at Carolus Magnus Nijmegen.

Five years ago, on the 4th of June 2014, RAMS was established by Lars Gallée, Josianne Luijten, Barof Sanaan and Tessa Schoot with the goal to make (bio)medical students enthusiastic for research during their study. 

We, as the fifth general and editorial board, are extremely proud of everything we accomplished with RAMS in the past five years. We would like to celebrate this milestone with you and hope that you can come!
Lifting or running: which gives you that six-pack faster?

The last few years people are increasingly hitting the gym to work on their physique, most importantly to lose fat. Most men start lifting to increase their muscle mass and acquire the beloved six-pack, whereas most women jump on the treadmill to burn calories and ultimately lose fat and weight. The new Dutch guideline for sports and exercise from 2017 advises people to do muscle and bone strengthening exercises next to cardiovascular exercises, like playing football or running on a treadmill [1]. The question then arises which of these two methods of exercise is actually superior when looking at the way it contributes to fat loss.


Get to know... Ilse

Dear RAMS readers,
Let me introduce myself; my name is Ilse Dijkman, a 22-year old student in her third year of the study Biomedical Sciences. Although I love performing research, my main passion has always been writing. This is why I am thrilled to say that I am the Editorial Editor-In-Chief of RAMS for the year 2019-2020. Meaning that I am responsible for the high quality and content of the editorial articles. Together with the editors, we hope to write the most creative, inspiring and interesting articles to amuse and enthuse our readers about. This year, I am going to challenge myself in being an inspiring and motivating Editorial Editor-In-Chief and I cannot wait to bring new ideas and energy into RAMS.
I wish you all good luck with your studies and your upcoming accomplishments. And I hope to see you joining us one day as one of our RAMS members!
