Sander Wezenberg, who works at the University of Groningen’s Stratingh Institute for Chemistry, received a prestigious Veni grant from NWO this summer. Wezenberg is planning to study ‘molecular handedness’. Many molecules in nature have a non-superimposable mirror image (left and right-handedness). In other words, they are chiral. The relationship between the left and right-handed molecules appears to influence certain important biological functions. Wezenberg is planning to develop chemical methods for determining and influencing chiral relationships.

The timing, route, and destination for godwit migration is learned rather than innate. Researchers at the University of Groningen discovered this in a daring experiment, which has been published in the latest issue of the journal Current Biology.
The grant is worth EUR 500,000, of which Avraamidou and Sburlea receive around EUR 100,000.
