33 leading researchers will each receive 1.5 million euros from the Dutch Research Council (NWO). This Vici grant will enable them to develop an innovative line of research and set up their own research group in the coming five years. Vici is one of the largest scientific grants for individuals in the Netherlands and targets advanced researchers.

The Project:

Decoding the human genome and metagenome in cardiometabolic diseases
