Meet our new Funding Advisor: Vivian Braeken

Dear colleagues,

I started at the Grant Office as one of the FHML-funding advisors in April 2019, where I was warmly welcomed by my colleagues Anne Gilsing and Willem Wolters. Since then our team has expanded and we have recently redistributed our tasks. As of Jan 2021, I am CAPHRI’s new funding advisor. I am very much looking forward to this new challenge and believe it is a great match with my expertise and own research background.

I started my research career in CAPHRI and completed my PhD research at the Department of Health Services Research (HSR). In June 2012, I defended my dissertation entitled: “Evaluating the feasibility and effectiveness of routine psychosocial screening in cancer patients receiving radiotherapy”. Moreover, in my previous positions as project manager at Project Bureau Additional Funds and as scientific coordinator at Zuyderland Medical Center, I worked regularly and with great pleasure with some researchers from CAPHRI.

Although CAPHRI is a large school, I hope to get to know you soon. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about funding opportunities, or if I can help you with funding applications, CV etc., or just for an introductory meeting.

I look forward to meeting you and to a pleasant cooperation.
