ZonMw launches research programme on pluripotent stem cells

stam cells

This spring will see the launch of ZonMw’s Pluripotent Stem Cells for Inherited Diseases and Embryonic Research (PSIDER) programme, for which the Dutch health ministry has earmarked 35 million euros over the next eight years. Researchers may submit proposals for studies of serious hereditary diseases and the development of alternative human embryo models for research into embryo development. All research projects will consider their ethical and social implications from the outset.

Computer model helps predict rejection of donor kidneys

Donornier

Sometimes a donor kidney is rejected years after it is transplanted. Researchers at Radboudumc teaching hospital in Nijmegen are developing a computer model that can predict this process, so that those cases can be treated properly. They are working closely with a number of partners in the Netherlands and abroad.

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.
