Adri Minnaard (bio-organic chemistry, Stratingh Institute for Chemistry) is part of a consortium which received a $3.5 million grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a new tuberculosis vaccine. Minnaard will employ four postdocs over the next one and a half year on this project.

Gerrit Jan Poelarends (Applied microbiology, Groningen Research Institute of Pharmacy ) received a KIEM grant from the Dutch funding agency NWO, to develop a new method to produce vital amino acids that may be used to treat brain disease. This is done in collaboration with the Groningen company Integrex Research.
