Radboud science award for Thijs Eijsvogels

ThijsScienceAward 2 Oct 2018

On October 2nd, Thijs Eijsvogels received the prestigious Radboud Science Award for his work on coronary atherosclerosis in veteran athletes, which was published last year in Circulation. This project was part of Vincent Aengevaeren's PhD project and performed in collaboration with Dr Arend Mosterd from Meander MC and Prof Birgitta Velthuis from UMCU. During the award ceremony, Thijs presented a lay presentation about his findings for 100 children, and a video portrait about him was revealed (see below). The Radboud Science Award allows research teams to translate scientific breakthroughs to educational programs for children in primary school, and Thijs will work together with Vincent, Esmée and the RU Science Education Hub on this exciting challenge during the upcoming months.
