The synergy between LACDR and the Leiden University Medical Center, as envisioned in LCTD3, already exists with regard to teaching: the course Hormones and the Nervous System has been elected 'Best Block' of the Biomedical Science curriculum 2009.  

This 9 weeks course is coordinated by the Division of Medical Pharmacology, and combines basic concepts in neuropharmacology and endocrine signaling with clinically oriented subjects. The courses enthousiastic teachers, who are both basic researchers and clinicians, come from within LACDR and from the Endocrinology and Gynaecology departments of LUMC.

The block coordinator, Dr Onno Meijer, was also nominated as 'Best Teacher' of the LUMC.

The prize was awarded 'Oscar-style' in the LUMC on June 17th.
