Two UM researchers in the running for New Scientist Wetenschapstalent

Two UM researchers in the running for New Scientist Wetenschapstalent

Biomedical scientist Aurélie Carlier and neuroscientist Kay Dekkers have been nominated for the election of New Scientist Wetenschapstalent 2021. The non-specialist scientific journal has selected a total of fifteen researchers from dozens who were put forward by the universities.

Carlier designed a virtual patient that doctors can use to get a better idea of broken bones and to design new therapies. Dekkers mapped out what reduces and increases the chances of dementia. On the basis of this, everyone can get a personal score to see how fit their brain is.

From 20 April to 3 May, the public can vote for the best candidate on www.newscientist.nl/polls/new-scientist-wetenschapstalent-2021/. From the five remaining candidates, a jury will choose a top three. New Scientist will announce the winner, who will receive 2,500 euro, in the Balie on 10 June.
