Froukje Vanweert has been awarded a Kootstra Talent Fellowship
Our colleague Froukje Vanweert has been awarded a Kootstra Talent Fellowship. Froukje will focus on the role of branched-chain amino acid (BCAA)  catabolism in type 2 diabetes. The role of BCAA, a specific group of essential amino acids, in the development of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes has been a topic of renewed interest. Patients with type 2 diabetes feature elevated BCAA levels in p...
