NWO XS grant for Wouter Roos

25 July 2022

Wouter Roos receives a grant for his project ‘Scrutinising antiviral interactions in real-time at the single particle level’. The grant consists of EUR 50,000.

With the XS grants, NWO strives to encourage curiosity-driven and bold research involving a quick analysis of a promising idea. A special aspect is that the applicants themselves assess the other applications.

Scrutinising antiviral interactions in real-time at the single particle level

Viruses chronically infect hundreds of million people every year leading to a large casualty rate. To date, for many viruses there is still no cure available. Potential antivirals have emerged to provide treatment for some of these virus-caused chronic diseases. However, the exact mechanism of these antivirals is unknown. This research project aims to provide a detailed model of the interactions of antivirals with single viral particles, using advanced microscopy techniques. The results from this research will drive improved designs of antiviral candidates to fight viral diseases.
