You can find more information on the website of the University Fund Limburg/SWOL.


“Thanks to a grant from the Professors’ Fund, I’m investigating the relationship between the eyes and the brain. Ultimately, I hope this will enable us to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease through tears instead of cerebrospinal fluid. This will be faster as well as less invasive for patients.” – Marlies Gijs (MHeNs), assistant professor/researcher, University Clinic for Ophthalmology (Photography: Ruben Schipper Fotografie)
