Molepi involved in 2 funded Rainbow Projects by BBMRI-NL

BBMRI-NL has awarded funding to two Rainbow projects.

The third Rainbow project to receive funding is ‘A nation-wide functional genomics infrastructure enabling mechanistic insights into complex disease phenotypes'. It is set up by four researchers: Dr. Bas Heijmans (LUMC), Dr. Lude Franke (UMCG), Dr. Aaron Isaacs (Erasmus MC), and Dr. Rick Jansen (VU). They stand to receive € 2 million.

Rainbow project 4 is called 'Infrastructure for the application of metabolomics technology in epidemiology', set up by Prof. Eline Slagboom (LUMC) and Prof. Dorret Boomsma (VUMC). They will receive funding for € 1.757 million.

Both projects will in all likelihood start in September and last two years.
