Tuesday 15th of November the Ubbo Emmius Fonds (UEF) JSM Talent Grants and the Van der Meer-Boerema Foundation Grants were awarded. Due to the MD/PhD program of the Junior Scientific Masterclass (JSM) students of Medicine and Dentistry can combine their master with scientific research. This enables them to go through an accelerated PhD program during their studies.

Four other Talent Grants ranging from € 5,000 to € 10,500 and funded by the Van der Meer-Boerema Foundation, were awarded to Jan Brouwer, Olaf Geerse, Andries Groen and Joost Hof.
