The Dutch Top Sector Life Sciences and Health aims to promote and stimulate new public-private partnerships to undertake research and development projects in the life sciences. In this scheme, Reinoud Gosens’ proposal has been awarded a PPP allowance of €159.674 in order to investigate “The COPD exacerbation as a therapeutic window for lung repair”, in a collaborative project with Aquilo B.V.
