Some of these infections can no longer be effectively treated, which increases the risk of dying. The One-Health theme supports research into the prevention and cure of infectious disease as well as zoonoses, antimicrobial resistance, vaccination, diet and health.

On this website you can find more information on ZonMw subsidy programmes and projects on infectious diseaseas and antimicrobial resistance, and current topics.

Award for RAPDIF-project

Dr. Henk Schallig ontvangt parelbeeldje

Thanks to the development of a new malaria rapid test, sick children with fever in Africa receive the correct diagnosis and the correct medication. In doing so, we help to stop antimicrobial resistance.

Large scale analysis of OMICS data for drug-target finding in neurodegenerative diseases

Topics

  • Using the potential from existing animal and cellular models and cohorts, including available data and biomaterial, for conducting large-scale OMICS approaches to unravel the interplay and interactions of molecules from multiple molecular levels driving disease pathogenesis.
  • Better understanding the complex and multi-factorial mechanisms of disease onset and progression as well as the corresponding influencing factors.
  • Translating the findings from Big Data analysis and multi-OMICS approaches to existing animal and cellular models, thereby enhancing the potential of these models.
  • Identification of new drug targets or novel starting points for pharmacological interventions and prevention.
  • Sharpening the current understanding of disease definition, thus leading to enhanced sub-classification and better patient stratification.
