Researchers Joost Kluiver and Anke van den Berg received a 772.000 euros grant of the Lymph&Co foundation. The reason for this grant is that an important network of genes that influence the growth of lymphoma cells was discovered recently. Researchers want to clarify this network and its genes to gain more knowledge of the pathophysiology of lymphoma and to develop new treatments.
Anke and Joost received the first cheque of 372.897 for research on the 5th of march. Prince Bernhard and the director of Lymph&Co Marie-José Helle handed it out at the yearly sponsor event of Lymph&Co 'the dutch 100'.
