The board of deans has recently decided to grant “ius promovendi” to Willeke Daamen, associate professor Soft tissue regeneration within the Dept. of Biochemistry. In the Netherlands, ius promovendi or the right to award a doctorate, is granted to professors, but can be extended to non-professors when they are sufficiently qualified and affiliated with a university as associate professor (UHD). Dr. Daamen will from now on act as a promotor for PhD-students under her supervision.
