Two talented Utrecht researchers go to foreign institutions with Rubicon grant


Two Utrecht-based researchers who have recently received their PhDs can do their research at institutes abroad thanks to a Rubicon grant from NWO. They will study radicalization in young conspiracy thinkers, and how a benign cell transforms into a malignant tumor cell.

For many researchers, experience abroad is an important step in their career. The Rubicon programme gives young, highly promising researchers the opportunity to gain international research experience at an institute that offers the best environment for their research. In total, fifteen Rubicon grants were awarded. The two Utrecht researchers that will receive a Rubicon grant are Hanne Duindam from the faculty of Social Sciences and Lieke van de Haar at UMC Utrecht.
