Vidi grant for bone model

Dr. Sandra Hofmann was awarded a Vidi grant for her project ‘A miniature bone model’.

A miniature bone model

The interaction between various cells within bone is still poorly understood. The goal of this project is to develop miniature bones from human cells in the laboratory. These tissues will be used to study bone turnover in healthy versus diseased bone and will consecutively be used to develop specific drug therapies.

Vidi grants

The 'Vidi' is awarded annually by NWO to researchers who have carried out good research after their PhD. In this way, NWO wants to finance research that is driven by curiosity. Granting a Vidi grant is an enormous achievement, considering only 15% granting rate.
