Fundamental research on the repair process involved in tissue damage

Prestigious grant for research on stem cell-mediated tissue regeneration

The research project VISION was awarded a prestigious TOP grant by the Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) worth 675,000 euros to examine the fundamental mechanisms behind stem cell transplantation and tissue regeneration. As part of the study, cornea stem cells were transplanted in a damaged eye, after which nanoparticles and imaging techniques were used to track the repair process.
