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.

Martine Hoogman, theme Neurodevelopmental disorders received a Veni grant for her project: " Completing the picture on ADHD".

ADHD is well-known for its deficits, but there may also be excellence in ADHD: creativity. I will draw a more complete picture of ADHD, investigating links between ADHD and creativity, in behavior/cognition, and underlying brain and genetic mechanisms. This work has implications for education, treatment, and patients’ quality of life.
