    Patients share valuable advice and experiences with their peers in online patient discussion groups. These uncensored experiences can provide a complementaryperspective to that of the health professional and thereby yield novel hypotheses which could be tested in further rigorous medical research. This thesis focuses on the development of automatic extraction methods to harvest these patient experiences from online patient forums using text mining techniques. We also examine the complementary value of these patient-reported outcomes to traditional sources of medical knowledge for scientific hypothesis generation. Specifically, we focus on the extraction of adverse drug events (i.e., side effects) and coping strategies for dealing with adverse drug events.

    At the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, we have set out to explore the strengths and limitations of replication studies in the humanities in practice. We are doing so by replicating two original studies: one in the field of art history, the other in the field of history of science and religion. In this blog, we outline the design, purposes, and aims of these projects and explore some of the challenges.

    The subject of the dissertation is the investigation and mapping of Nikolay Ivanovich Pirogov, the founder of “modern medicine” in Imperial Russia in the 19th century, Soviet Union and the Russian Federation. Pirogov lived from 1810-1881 and is briefly and incorrectly only known in the world history of medicine as a military surgeon. He was a professor of applied anatomy and surgery from an early age, being the first to administer anaesthesia (ether) on the battlefield in the Caucasus during the summer of 1847. He was above all a scientist and teacher. He was also a member and correspondent of the Imperial Russian Academy of Sciences, and forerunner of the International Red Cross. He wrote many (text)books with different disciplines as subject. Research shows that he is a late student of the Leiden Medical School from the 18th century.The question is: why is Herman Boerhaave, who lived in the late 17th – early 18th century, more famous than Nikolay I. Pirogov, who lived in the 19th century from 1810-1881.

    In eastern Mediterranean sediments, the titanium-to-aluminum ratio (Ti/Al) captures relative variability in eolian to river-derived material and predominantly integrates climate signals over the Saharan and Sahel regions. Long Ti/Al time series can, therefore, provide valuable records of North African humidity and aridity changes. X-ray fluorescence core scanning (XRF-CS) can generate near-continuous Ti/Al records with relatively modest effort and in an acceptable amount of time, provided that accurate Ti/Al values are acquired. Calibration of raw XRF-CS data to those of established analytical methods is an important pathway for obtaining the required accuracy. We assess how to obtain reliable XRF-CS Ti/Al calibration by using different calibration reference sample sets for a long sediment record from ODP Site 967 (eastern Mediterranean Sea). The accuracy of reference concentrations and the number of reference samples are important for reliable calibration. Our continuous Ti/Al record allows detailed time series analysis over the past 3 Myr. Near-direct control of low-latitude insolation on the timing and amplitude of North African aridity and humidity is observed from 3 to ∼ 1.2 Ma. In our Ti/Al record, most arid North African intervals (i.e., with the longest period and highest amplitude) occur after the mid-Pleistocene transition (MPT; ∼ 1.2–0.7 Ma), when ice ages intensified. We also observe a subdued relationship between low-latitude insolation and North African climate after the MPT. These findings support the growing consensus that African climate became more sensitive to remote high-latitude climate when a threshold ice volume was reached during the MPT.

    Abstract This contribution aims to approach the theme of a traveling Islam by starting from moving people and considering how their religious “luggage”—in terms of beliefs, ideas, and practices—travels with them and what this means for the circulation of religious ideas in Africa and beyond. The paper focuses particularly on Senegalese migrants of the Murid Sufi order residing in Italy and the Netherlands; it investigates how their religious luggage is important to them in the migration context and may circulate further from there. In addition, it explores how their religious luggage is moulded in, and through, their migration experiences: for instance, its meaning may change, or another layer may be added. Finally, ideas on (the force of) the Muridiyya may travel back to Senegal, adding other layers to the meaning of religion there as well.

    Around the turn of the millennium, as responsibility became an increasingly important concept in relation to research and innovation within both policy and academic discourse, responsibility was largely framed as a new and emerging matter of concern. ‘Responsible Innovation’ and ‘Responsible Research and Innovation’ quickly became popular ways of talking about responsibility-related issues for policy-makers and academics alike. Yet clearly, responsibility has meant different things to different people for a very long time and contemporary ideas surrounding responsibility within research and innovation did not emerge out of nowhere; rather, they are part of a long history within which different ways of understanding responsibility have been made to matter. This thesis treats ‘Responsible Innovation’ as an intellectual movement. It zooms in on the emergence, development, outcomes and consequences of antecedent movements in order to show how making responsibility matter within research and innovation often means attempting to strike a balance between opportunity and need, evolution and revolution, continuity and change. It argues that at a time when our world is confronted by numerous inescapable societal and environmental challenges, many of which are seen as the indirect consequences of scientific and technological developments, it is essential that we continue thinking about the different ways in which responsibility matters.
