Veni Grant for Dr. Ron Gill

2010 | 2 November

The Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO) announced today that Dr. Ron Gill from the NBP group has been rewarded a Veni grant worth 250,000 euro. The money will provide Ron financial support for three years of research. Ron will use the money to investigate ways to improve fluorescence techniques. In his research he examines how fluorescent materials can be made to emit more light by positioning them between silver nanoparticles. This will ultimately lead to more sensitive, cheaper and smaller biomolecular diagnostic equipment.
