Sabine van Rijt receives prestigious ERC Grant for her research on biomaterials

Sabine van Rijt, principal investigator at Maastricht University’s MERLN Institute, has received a prestigious European grant of two million euros for her research project Nano4Bone. Her team is developing biomaterials for use in the treatment of cancer patients who have had surgery to remove diseased bone. The materials promote new bone growth and at the same time render any residual tumour cells harmless. The ERC Consolidator Grant has a term of five years.
