Maurits van Selms

Plenary programme

13:30 - 14:00
Panel discussion 'Right to Try' - access to experimental treatment

After studying one year at KU Leuven, Maurits Karel Adriaan van Selms (1974) started in 1995 the study dentistry in Amsterdam (ACTA). The route towards becoming a dentist was blocked when the neuromuscular disease Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) was diagnosed in 1998. In 2001, Maurits filed a lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company to gain access to an unregistered drug. Since 2007, when he received his PhD degree, Maurits is tenured as researcher and lecturer. Various publications and presentations at scientific conferences have earned him a positive reputation. Maurits is currently designated as co-promotor of doctoral students. Despite the breadth of challenges disabled academics face, Maurits is a good example that it is possible to lead a meaningful and qualitatively good live.
