Clinical Scientist Dekker grant Job Verdonschot

Job Verdonschot has received one of the 10 Dekker grants awarded by the Dutch Heart Foundation. The Clinical Scientist grant of € 245,000 will allow him to boost his research focusing on helping the family members of patients with dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM).

Heart muscle diseases can arise from hereditary causes. As a result, they mainly occur in certain families. They can cause severe heart failure and/or cardiac arrest. It is vital to detect these diseases in time. That is why first-degree relatives of patients are also advised to have their heart examined regularly.
