Her research focusses on the demographic characteristics and behavior of migrant populations. De Valk was awarded the ERC Grant for her research Migrant youth mobility in Europe: Patterns, processes and consequences.
Rudolf de Boer
Prof. Rudolph de Boer is Professor in Translational Cardiology at the Faculty of Medical Sciences/UMCG. De Boer will use the ERC Grant to conduct research into the interaction between heart failure and the emergence of cancer. The treatment for heart failure has improved, but the mortality rates remain high. It has become clear over the past few years that patients with heart failure often die of cancer, but this aspect has received little attention. De Boer will research whether different types of heart failure produce direct or indirect effects on the emergence of various types of cancer. It is expected that this will lead to the identification of factors that influence tumour growth, but possibly also to known kidney, liver and lung diseases that often occur alongside heart failure.
Prof. Dr F. (Franjo) Weissing
Prof. Franjo Weissing, Theoretical Biology, has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant. Weissing will use the grant to investigate the evolution of regulation networks. The ERC project has been divided into subprojects, which deal with concrete questions from different fields. Which organisms in a time of global warming are still able to adapt to their changing circumstances? How does an immune system adapt to the range of pathogens to which it is exposed? How did our ability to learn evolve, and what can we conclude from this about the structure of our brains and our emotional system?
