Bas Bloem, theme Disorders of movement, has been appointed member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). Bas Bloem is among nineteen new members chosen by the KNAW this year.

The KNAW elects new members annually, based on scientific achievements. In addition to Bas Bloem, four more researchers from the Radboud campus in Nijmegen are joining the KNAW.

Bas Bloem is an expert in Parkinson's disease. He is also a healthcare innovator, focused on the integration of scientific research and its clinical applications. One example of this is ParkinsonNet, set up by Bas Bloem and human movement scientist Marten Munneke, a national network on which more than three thousand specialist Dutch Parkinson's care providers work together with each other and with patients.

Thanks to ParkinsonNet, many treatment methods have already been tested and lifestyle advice has been developed. Patients play an active part in this. This innovative approach has resulted in better quality care at lower costs and is being imitated worldwide.
