Research Departments Physiology 20210205 Hamburger Award for Vincent
5 February 2021

Vincent Aengevaeren has been awarded the Hamburger Award 2020 for his thesis entitled “Potential Detrimental Effects of Exercise on the Heart”, during this year's Dutch Physiology Day. The award is named after Hartog Jacob Hamburger (1859 - 1924), a Dutch Professor in Physiology of the University of Groningen.

The jury this year consisted of Prof. Peter Hordijk (UMC Amsterdam), Dr. Jenny van der Wijst and Prof. Marc Vos (UMC Utrecht). There were 15 entries. Jenny presented the motivation from the Jury Report and also the prize:

Jury motivation
“We received 15 wonderful theses and had a tough job scoring them, so well done to all. But, there was 1 thesis that stood out. The PhD candidate had a significant number of publications, in leading journals in the field. Moreover, the amount of data presented and the fact that part of the research was performed abroad must have been the result of a very organized and dedicated planning. In this way, the PhD candidate was able to make scientific and societal impact through linking important medical factors with physical activity, and thereby challenging the question: ‘is more exercise always healthy?’ His work also led to various prizes, presentations at conferences and news items.”
