Junior Fellowship for Amée Buziau

The Dutch Diabetes Research Foundation has awarded a Junior Fellowship (€300k) to Dr Amée Buziau (Dept. of Internal Medicine).

 The 3-year project of Amée focuses on the role of the pentose-phosphate pathway in the pathogenesis of intrahepatic lipid accumulation (and, subsequently, type 2 diabetes). Amée will employ multiple research methodologies including an in vitro model (human induced pluripotent stem cells-derived hepatocyte-like cells), traditional epidemiology, and genetic epidemiology, highlighting the translational nature of her research.
