NCOH Student Travel Grant
The NCOH awards a number of travel grants to PhD students of NCOH Partners selected to present their abstract at an international One Health-related academic conference.
Last year we eagerly finalised the discussions on the continuation of NCOH after its first funding period, and the Strategic Research Agenda was formulated for 2022-2026. In addition to the four Strategic Research Themes, this period we will also be focussing on a few more overarching topics, such as pandemic preparedness.
Bert Poolman is a biochemistry professor at the University of Groningen and has been a member of the NCOH Executive Board since the summer of 2022. In the lab, he builds synthetic cells, and in his free time, he builds his holiday home in Italy. Poolman discusses his research, his role within NCOH and how Groningen researchers contribute.
