Veni grant for Charissa van den Brom


Charissa van den Brom has been awared a Veni grant. She receives up to 250,000 euros to spend the coming three years on her project about inhibition of leaky vessels to prevent kidney damage. Perfusion disturbances of the smallest vessels in critically ill patients can impair renal function as oxygen exchange is limited. Charissa will study the role of damaged inner layer of these vessels to develop treatments directed against leaking vessels to prevent renal damage.
