The ERC Advanced grant is awarded to Gilles van Wezel, Professor of Molecular Biotechnology of the Institute Biology Leiden (IBL) of Leiden University. With 2.5 million euro grant of the European Research Council, he will focus on unravelling the systems that control the production of antibiotics in the bacteria Streptomyces.
On 23 March 2022, Quinten Ducarmon was the first PhD candidate within the PhD research programme of the Netherlands Centre for One Health to graduate, and he did so with distinction (cum laude). In his research he aims to identify intestinal bacteria that may play a role in colonization resistance against potential pathogens and antibiotic-resistant microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract.
NCOH bundles One Health top research
The Netherlands Centre for One Health (NCOH) aims for an integrated One Health approach to tackle the global risk of infectious diseases. NCOH commits to create durable solutions for this major challenge by bundling world-leading academic top research in the Netherlands in the area of One Health.
Young NCOH is the network for PhD students and post-docs from the NCOH research groups. Aim of the network is sharing knowledge and expertise in One Health related disciplines, which can lead to new collaborations in research.
Complementary research themes
The 4 NCOH strategic research themes are complementary and interactive. They focus on studying the interactions and connections between human, veterinary, wildlife, and environmental health. The focus of NCOH is on (re-)emerging infectious diseases, epidemics, and antimicrobial resistance, including veterinary and environmental challenges. Its objective is to find sustainable solutions for global One Health challenges. How NCOH and its researchers accomplish this, you can read in our NCOH interactive brochure.
NCOH is partner in the Netherlands Antibiotic Development Platform (NADP).
