Gravity grant awarded to research on brain interactions

Gravity grant awarded to research on brain interactions

To understand how the brain works, we need to understand how each part, from neuron to brain region, interacts with the rest of the brain and with the outside world. Thanks to a grant of 21.9 million euros from the Gravity program, from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, a national consortium can now conduct further research into this.

National Growth Fund for better cancer treatment with AI: Oncode-PACT*

National Growth Fund for better cancer treatment with AI: Oncode-PACT*

The National Growth Fund invests 325 million euro in the Oncode-PACT* plan to accelerate the preclinical development process of cancer drugs. The consortium, which also includes Professor of Bioinformatics Marcel Reinders, will use this funding to fast develop valuable candidate cancer drugs as well as new methods to get these new drugs to the patients for whom they are most effective. This will improve the quality of life of cancer patients while strengthening the future economic earning capacity of the Netherlands. Within the consortium, an important role is reserved for the enabling power of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
