RIMLS is now on full strength by welcoming new colleagues. Let us introduce them to you and find out what they can do for you.

Clasien Oomen joined our team as scientific manager. Clasien is the successor of Dov Ballak. Previously, Clasien worked at the Dept. of Ophthalmology and before that for the research master Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. Together with René Bindels (scientific director) and Dagmar Eleveld (scientific manager) Clasien is part of the RIMLS management team. 

The Grant Support Office (GSO, department of Valorization) appointed Rachel van Swelm as grant advisor dedicated to RIMLS. Rachel will be the primary contact person for all RIMLS researchers for information and support on grant opportunities. Moreover, as grant advisor RIMLS, Rachel will continue to fine-tune the services of the GSO to meet the needs of the RIMLS researchers.

And last but not least, Information Management has started with a support team in the Research Tower. This support team will be available for complex questions regarding ICT issues (pilot).This new helpdesk is primarily intended for non-standard questions and solutions for research groups (for standard questions call the ICT helpdesk 15071). The support team (Remco den Ouden, Arthur Pistorius and Michel Verbruggen) can help you to find solutions for your ICT questions. 

You can contact these people directly or via the front office of RIMLS (Judith Ariëns, Janneke Hermens or Lionne Ekers).  

We welcome them all wholeheartedly and wish them a lot of success.
