Jaap van Buul has been awarded with a prestigious VICI grant!
Dr. Jaap D. van Buul ( UvA – Sanquin Research and Landsteiner Laboratory) received the VICI grant for his project "Gatekeepers of the vasculature".
The blood vessel wall acts as gatekeepers between the blood and the surrounding tissue. In case of inflammation, white blood cells move through the vessel wall to deal with the inflammation. This proposal aims to understand where white blood cells exit to clear harmful pathogens.
