Vidi grant for Jordi Heijman

The Dutch Research Council (NWO) has awarded a Vidi grant worth 800,000 EUR to Jordi Heijman (Dept. of Cardiology). Jordi receives the grant for his project "Time traveling to treat heart rhythm disorders". Heart rhythm disorders remain a major cause of death. To identify improved therapies, Jordi and his team will use advanced computer models to determine the mechanisms through which heart rhythm disorders become more stable over time, a process involving changes in numerous components of the heart’s electrical system occurring over milliseconds to days. In 2015, Jordi already received a Veni grant for his research.
