Vici grant for Ingrid Meulenbelt
Ingrid Meulenbelt (LUMC) was nominated by the Dutch Society for Scientific Research (NWO) to receive a prestigious Vici-grant of 1.5 million euros for her research of osteoarthritis (OA).
The project will investigate the biological basis of the most important molecular differences in joint tissues of OA patients. Subsequently, differences will be mimicked in vitro to search for efficient OA treatment options. "What we want to accomplish in the end is to be able to diagnose the OA-subtype at an early stage and apply a fitting treatment", says Ingrid (source: LUMC).
