16 researchers who have recently received their PhDs can do their research at foreign research institutes thanks to a Rubicon grant from NWO. The Rubicon programme gives young, highly promising researchers the opportunity to gain international research experience.
They investigate responses among other topics the plumbing of miniature kidneys, breastfeeding and healthprotecting, protecting kidneys on the ICU and the role of cholersterol in Alzheimer’s disease.
For many researchers, experience abroad is an important step in their career. Thanks to the Rubicon grant these young researchers can do their research at top institutions such as Oxford and Harvard. The laureates depart to different destinations: seven laureates are going to the United States, four to the United Kingdom, two to Germany and the rest of the individual candidates are going to Australia, Israel and France.
