Marieke Klein, theme Neurodevelopmental disorders, received a Rubicon Grant from the Dutch Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The Rubicon program gives young, highly promising researchers the opportunity to gain international research experience.

Marieke is traveling to the United States, University of California San Diego, Department of Psychiatry, for 24 months. 

About her project: 
DNA mutations often have serious consequences and yet millions of changes take place without any apparent consequences. Together they form a key for the development of psychiatric disorders. The researcher will develop new analysis methods to investigate the interaction of these genetic variants.
International research experience is for many scientists an important step in their career. Thanks to the Rubicon grant young researchers can do their research at top institutes across the world for a maximum of 24 months. The size of the grant depends on the destination chosen and the length of stay.
