Willem Staels, postdoctoral researcher at BENE, is granted the prestigous FWO Senior Clinical Investigator Grant 2020-2025.
This grant will allow him to be half time released from his clinical duties at the UZ Brussel (service of pediatric endocrinology) to do research in molecular diabetology. The grant is allocated yearly by the FWO to well trained medical doctors and researchers who want to establish a carreer in translational research. Of the eight new laureates in 2020, Willem is the only one based at VUB and the UZ Brussel.
