Life threatening Asthma on the ICU: determining risk factors and optimizing treatment (Astma project)
AMMODO ✕ Sophia Research BV
2015 - 2018

In the Netherlands 4-7% of children have asthma. In some cases, an asthma attack can develop that is potentially life-threatening and results in children needing to be admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU). The Asthma Project seeks to develop a programme aimed at prevention of asthma attacks and to establish a dosing schedule for the drug Salbutamol which has a scientific basis. The Asthma Project is a multicenter clinical trial. This furthers the cooperation of the various child IC departments in the Netherlands. Ammodo supports the Asthma Project to encourage research into the treatment of asthma in children.

Ayios Vasilios
AMMODO ✕ University of Groningen (RUG)
2016

The University of Groningen is initiating research entitled Before Menelaus: Social Change in Early Mycenaean Ayios Vasilios. Since 2009 its archaeologists have been investigating the area of Ayios Vasilios in Greece. They have identified this area as the location of the palace of the Mycenaean Laconia, a historic region of Greek antiquity. One of the discoveries is an old cemetery from the time of the first construction phase of the complex. By supporting this research Ammodo aims to contribute to the gaining of a better understanding of the early phases of the Mycenaean period (circa 1700 to 1500 B.C.) and the unlocking of this cultural heritage.

Anatomical Theatre: ‘Theatre of Life and Death’
AMMODO ✕ Museum Boerhaave

Museum Boerhaave owns a replica of the Leiden Anatomical Theatre that opened in 1597. Public dissections were held here and rarities such as skeletons, mummies and Roman antiquities were displayed. Under the direction of curator Tim Huisman, who graduated from Leiden University in 2009 having written his thesis on the history of the Anatomical Theatre, the original function of the Anatomical Theatre is being restored. As an introduction to the collection of Museum Boerhaave, the Anatomical Theatre uses holographic techniques to allow the public to experience what an anatomy lesson would have been like. Ammodo supports the Anatomical Theatre: Theatre of Life and Death to contribute to the opening up of the historical scientific collection of Museum Boerhaave through contemporary techniques.

NEC-study
AMMODO ✕ Nederlands Kanker Instituut
March 2015 - present

The NEC study covers research into rare and difficult to treat metastatic or advanced neuroendocrine carcinoma (NECs) of the gastrointestinal system. The study is searching for new treatment methods that can be developed by the mapping of neuroendocrine carcinomas, on the basis of DNA/RNA analysis. Ammodo supports the research as a means of contributing to the realisation of this DNA/RNA analysis in order to improve the treatment methods for NECs.

Mesenchymale stamceltherapie voor boezemfibrilleren: een nieuw antwoord op een groeiende pandemie?
AMMODO ✕ Leiden University Medical Center
2013 - 2017

The Heart Center in Leiden, which is part of the Leiden University Medical Center, is launching an investigation into the frequently occurring cardiac arrhythmia atrial fibrillation. In this project, the therapeutic potential of human chymal stem cells which have been derived from patients with atrial fibrillation is being investigated. Ammodo supports this research in order to contribute to the further research into the treatment of cardiac arrhythmia atrial fibrillation.

Ius Commune Casebook
AMMODO ✕ Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen
2012 - 2017

The Ius Commune Casebook focuses on the direct effect of EU law on national private law (the Casebook). It is a joint project between the law faculties of Maastricht University and the University of Leuven. The Initiator is Professor W. van Gerven, a former professor at Leuven and former Advocate-General at the European Court of Justice. The research is being led by Professor A.S. Hartkamp and is the work of a partnership of lawyers from different legal systems, from ten different countries. Ammodo supports the Ius Commune Casebook to boost scientific research into the influence of European legal standards on national private law.

Van Gogh Programme
AMMODO ✕ Nuffic
2014 - 2016

Nuffic supports the internationalisation of higher education and scientific research. In 2014 Nuffic began the management and execution of the Van Gogh Programme. The programme awards scholarships to outstanding Dutch and French researchers working together on a single research project. This can be in any scientific discipline and often involves fundamental research. Ammodo supports the Van Gogh Programme to contribute to the continuation of these exchanges between the Netherlands and France.

Anti-cancer research
AMMODO ✕ University Medical Center Utrecht
2012 - 2016

The purpose of this project is to develop an additional anti-virus and anti-cancer therapy from umbilical cord blood. Along with the unrelated cord blood transplant this should ensure a stronger defense against viruses and cancer. The research is being conducted by the research group “Children’s Medical Stem Cell Transplantation Programme” at the Wilhelmina Children’s Hospital, which is part of University Medical Center Utrecht. Ammodo supports this project to contribute to research that aims to improve the survival chances of children suffering from serious cancers.

Renewal of ‘De Gids’ and ‘De Gidslectures’
AMMODO ✕ De Gids
2012 - 2016

The literary and general cultural magazine De Gids was founded in 1837 and is the oldest literary magazine in the Netherlands. Established as a platform for writers and scientists, De Gids brings out eight editions a year, each comprising longer essays, short stories and poetry. In 2012 De Gids celebrates its 175th anniversary. A renewal of the website content is planned together with the launch of an ebook version of each publication, and in the future De Gids will be published by the highly respected De Groene Amsterdammer. Besides the new appearance of the magazine, two lectures will be given by a prominent figure in the international literary world. By supporting the renewal of De Gids, Ammodo aims to contribute to its gaining new audiences and increasing its circulation.
