Elena Daoutsali and Ronald Buijsen from the NeuroD research group were awarded the Sargenti Research Grant, organized by the Neuroscience Research Theme. The grant was for the field of neurodegenerative diseases and made possible through a donation from the legacy of mr. Sargenti to the Leiden University Fund. Together with the group of Saskia Lesnik Oberstein they will investigate novel APP mutations using the newly developed analysis pipeline for 3D hiPSC-derived models. We wish Elena and Ronald good luck with this exciting project.
