NPC researcher receives ERC Advanced Investigator Grant

November, 2011

NPC theme leader Hermen Overkleeft (Leiden University) has been awarded an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant worth 3 million euros. Overkleeft will share his grant with Hans Aerts (Amsterdam Medical Centre), with whom he has been working on glycolipids for over ten years. Their main focus will be at lysosomal storage diseases, including Gaucher disease, the most famous example. They will try and unravel the whole route: from understanding the composition of these glycolipids in the cell to developing more effective enzyme therapies.

High-quality proteomics research
