The Organization Committee of the SPINOZA CHAIR, set up by the Amsterdam University Association on behalf of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Amsterdam, has awarded the SPINOZA CHAIR for 2015 to Dr Veronica Kinsler (MD, PhD, MRCPCH) from October 26 until October 29, 2015.

The chair was established in 1995 by the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Amsterdam, and is named for Baruch Spinoza, the 17th-century Dutch philosopher. The visiting professorship is awarded to two high-profile laureates each year, one in medicine and the other in philosophy, so a very prestigious accolade.
