Fifteen researchers from the Radboud University and Radboud university medical center have been awarded a Veni grant by NWO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. These grants of up to €250,000 provide highly promising young scientists with the opportunity to further elaborate their own ideas during a period of three years.

Jorik Nonnekes, theme Disorders of movement received a Veni grant for his project: "Towards personalized rehabilitation: understanding compensation strategies for gait impairments in Parkinson’s disease".

Gait impairments are common in Parkinson’s disease. Patients use strategies to  compensate for their gait impairments, but these compensation strategies are not effective for every patient and are poorly understood. To improve treatment Nonnekes will investigate their working mechanism, and link patient characteristics to the effectiveness  of individual compensation strategies.
