Harry Crijns Research Grant Quirien Robbe

Quirien Robbe (Dept. of Neurology) received the 2023 Harry Crijns Research Grant for her project 'Prognostic value of concomitant, choroid artery occlusion in acute ischaemic, large vessel stroke', a pioneering scientific research into dementia after stroke within a collaboration between radiology and neurology. The Harry Crijns Research Grant was awarded for the first time in 2021 by the Cardiovascular Research Fund of Health Foundation Limburg (this year sponsored by Bayer and Amgen) to a promising young researcher in the field of cardiovascular disease. The Grant was instituted as a tribute to Prof. Harry Crijns, who was chair the Department of Cardiology of Maastricht UMC+ until December 2020 and board member of CARIM. The grant was traditionally awarded during CARIM Symposium 2023, followed by a presentation of the winner.
