NWO has awarded a Vidi grant worth 800.000 euro to six experienced UM researchers: Dr. Tamar Sharon (FASoS), Prof. Caroline Goukens, Prof. Olivier Marie and Dr. Annelies Renders (all SBE) and Prof. Bart Rutten and Dr. Judith Sluimer (both FHML/MUMC+). The grant enables them to develop their own innovative line of research and set up their own research group.
Sharon’s research is about "The Googlization of health and the common good". As we move into the digital era, companies like Google and Apple are becoming important actors in health research. But how do we ensure that this serves the public interest? This research studies the impact of the “Googlization of health” on the common good, and investigates ways to secure it.Vidi grant for Tamar Sharon | FASoS Weekly
