A facility for students and researchers from various academic institutions in Amsterdam where they can check at a very early stage how promising their ideas and iniatives are before moving on to a start-up.
The faculty of Behavioural and Movement Sciences has three ‘Dream Teams’ for students that participate in innovative sport and kinesiology projects.
HUMAN PERFORMANCE LAB
The Human Performance Lab is a research facility with a unique climate-controlled room where research into human performance parameters is carried out under extreme circumstances (low oxygen; low and high temperatures). Also available are rooms for anthropometric measurements (dimensions and proportions of the human body), measurements of muscle strength, as well as running tests with cycling ergometers.
RESEARCH LABS IN THE O|2 LAB BUILDING
The O|2 Lab building is one of the first among Dutch academia buildings developed for the research theme Human Life Sciences. The building sports biochemical labs, labs for synthesis, a lab for radionuclides, and an ML-III lab for research into resistant bacteria and such.
Laboratory for research into dangerous pathogenic micro-organisms, such as tuberculosis . The ML-III Lab is important to the development of next generation antibiotics to combat resistant bacteria effectively. The Lab counts three level III labs to enable the pursuit of various lines of enquiry in parallel.
These learning rooms have been configured as hospitals rooms. Four types of skills labs will be realized: basic nursing care, OR assistant (operation room with OR-table), intensive care room, and radio-diagnostic laboratory assistant (X-Ray room with observation window).
