The cum laude PhD thesis of Tom Schirris, entitled ‘Identifying on- and off-target mitochondrial drug effects by systems medicine’, was also recognized by the Netherlands Society of Toxicology as best contribution to the field in 2016.

At the annual meeting of the society on June 20 in Doorn, Tom received the Joep van den Bercken prize along with a certificate and € 1000. Tom gave an excellent presentation on his work, in which he showed how cross-fertilizing connections between systems medicine, toxicology and mitochondrial biology has resulted in new insights into the understanding of side effects of drugs and treatment of metabolic disorders.
