RIMLS VENI laureate 2017

One young researcher, affiliated to the RIMLS, has received a Veni grant of 250,000 Euro from the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). Our researcher received this prestigious grant for his remarkable and original talent and his ability to carry out innovative research. He has only recently completed his doctorates and has now the challenging opportunity to develop his scientific ideas during the coming three years. The Veni grant from the NWO's Innovational Research Incentives Scheme is one of the most prestigious grants for young researchers, and to be awarded is considered an important step in an academic career. Although the Veni researchers are at the beginning of their careers, they have demonstrated to not only possess a remarkable talent in conducting academic research, but are also at the top of their scientific field internationally.

As RIMLS we can make the difference with newly identified high potentials who can start their own research lines. Hopefully, Jeroen de Baaij will also serve as role models for our current PhD's and motivate them to pursue a similar Veni track.

During the application process our Veni applicants were supported by the RIMLS Grant Committee chaired by Johan van der Vlag and our Valorisation Centre. The successful support is greatly appreciated and certainly contributed to this outstanding achievement.

On behalf of all RIMLS colleagues, we wish Jeroen de Baaij a lot of fun and excitement performing his studie and outlined plans in the years to come. Congratulations to you! 

RIMLS-related Awardee:

undefinedJeroen de Baaij, theme Renal Disorders

Title of the project: The magnesium journey through the renal cell: how to get out?

Aim of the project: Renal magnesium wasting is often the cause of hypomagnesemia in patients. This study will examine the cells that transport magnesium in the kidney. Already for fifteen years, it is known how magnesium enters these kidney cells, but the mechanism of subsequent extrusion to the blood compartment remains elusive.
