Rogier Veltrop (ESR11) won the HS-BAFTA award

Rogier Veltrop (ESR11) won the HS-BAFTA (Harry Struijker-Boudier Award For Talented Academics) for his work in induced Pluripotent Stem Cell research. 

In the CaReSyAn project, he developed iPSC-cardiomyocytes to investigate the effect of uremic toxins on cardiomyocytes. To reduce animal experiments and to increase physiological relevance, he generated and characterized iPSC-cardiomyocytes from patient's blood. With this novel system, Rogier is able to further unravel molecular mechanisms of CKD. This prestigious award was awarded to Rogier Veltrop by the Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht (CARIM), which is also a partner of the CaReSyAn consortium.
