RCMM Achievement Award Leo Nijtmans

Nijtmans, Leo

During the afternoon celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Radboud Center for Mitochondrial Medicine Leo Nijtmans was awarded the first RCMM Achievement Award. The prize was awarded to honour his work on mitochondrial function in health and disease. Leo has contributed greatly to the understanding of how the most important energy generating system in our cells, the oxidative phosphorylation system, is assembled and which genes and proteins are relevant in health and in disease.

He is an inspiration to his students. We congratulate Leo with this wonderful achievement. Read the report in the Gelderlander about the event.
