Marthe Walvoort, Assistant Professor of Chemical Biology, received a Veni grant from NWO this summer.

Her aim is to synthesize the good sugars that appear in breast milk and combat the sugars in pathogenic bacteria.

Marthe Walvoort is also a Rosalind Franklin Fellow at the University of Groningen and founding member of the Young Academy Groningen .
