Dutch Heart Foundation Dekker grant Magdi Nagy

The Dutch Heart Foundation has awarded a Dr. E. Dekker postdoc grant of € 280,000 to Dr Magdi Nagy (Dept. of Biochemistry). With this personal research grant for talented scientists, she can conduct research into cardiovascular diseases in the coming years.

Magdi's research focuses on safer medicines for patients who have had a stroke. Many of them are prescribed medicines to prevent blood clots. Blood clots can lead to another cerebral infarction. However, these drugs have a nasty side effect. They can cause bleeding, sometimes even dangerous.
