Project Y (zeg 'why')
Project Y (zeg 'why') is een unieke studie onder alle Nederlanders met de hersenziekte multiple sclerose (MS) die in 1966 geboren zijn. Doel is factoren vinden die bepalen dat iemand een goed of slecht verloop van de MS heeft. "Als we weten welke ziektemechanismen het ziektebeloop bepalen, kunnen we gerichter ingrijpen om iedereen een gunstig verloop te geven", aldus prof. dr. Bernard Uitdehaag, neuroloog en directeur van het VUmc MS Centrum Amsterdam. Mensen met MS gaan in de loop van de tijd vaak fysiek achteruit.

Marloes Groot features in Quantivision-based project funded by Amsterdam Neuroscience
Quantivision, a collaboration of amongst others Amsterdam Neuroscience investigators, aims to revolutionize the future of clinical practice, by enabling better, faster, and more affordable diagnosis and monitoring of patients. Their developments will focus on clinical usefulness. As developments will be based on clinical needs, progress will be driven by a “clinical pull” rather than a “research push”, making sure that results of iQ are relevant for daily clinical practice. Here Prof. Marloes Groot on one of the Quantivision projects that was funded by various agencies including a Proof-of-Concept grant from Amsterdam Neuroscience.
