Sophie Schmid has been awarded a Veni grant from the NWO

Challenging the elderly brain

Vascular components contribute significantly to neurodegeneration in the elderly and constitute one of the first changes, long before clinical symptoms become overt. Schmid aims to develop MRI tools suitable for use in a clinical setting to assess the status of the vasculature in the brain in a non-invasive way.


This grant of up to 250,000 euros will give them the opportunity to further elaborate their own ideas over a period of three years.
