- Best abstract prize

Paul de Goede is awarded the first ever annual AG&M PhD-students retreat 2017 best abstract prize.

Abstract/presentation title:

- VICI Grant  
 
Dr. Susanne la Fleur is awarded a VICI grant from the Talent Scheme of the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). VICI is one of the research-specific types of funding from NWO. It is a VICI Researchers and Creates Researchers of the VICI laureates. The Researchers are free to choose the subject of their research.
 
This year 32 scientists each received 1.5 million euros to do research and build a research group over the next five years. Susanne's grant proposal is "Entitled:" To be ready for the brain's reward center. "
 
 

- DFN Fellowship 

   

Dr. Chun-Xia Yi received a senior fellowship from the Diabetes Fund Netherland (DFN). This fellowship is Awarded annually to the same time as the researcher has become the ambition to continue his career in diabetes research and is close to his own research group. He or she gets € 325,000 for 4 years as additional start-up money for their Own Research Group. The title of the research proposal is "targeting the hypothalamic innate immune response to combat obesity and type 2 diabetes." 

Central to her research is the hypothalamus, a brainregion for the regulation of energy balance and glucose metabolism. Recent evidence shows that pathological processes in the hypothalamus can contribute to the development of obesity (severe overweight) and diabetes. In particular, the interaction between neurons (nerve cells) in the hypothalamus and microglia (immune cells in the brains) is of interest. With this fellowship Chun-Xia will test the hypothesis of a high-calorie diet disrupts this interaction, allowing the development of obesity and diabetes.
