VENI Grant for Lynn Bar-On

In July of this year, Lynn Bar-On (VUmc Rehabilitation Medicine) received a Veni grant from ZonMW. Her project is entitled The means towards etiology-driven treatment of joint hyper-resistance in spastic cerebral palsy and will be performed in collaboration with the KU Leuven. The project aims to unravel the separate effects of muscle spasticity and stiffness, by imaging muscle movement and activity during passive and active stretching, standing, and walking, and by administrating treatment that targets either component. Lynn will join the VUmc in February ’18 for her project.
