Eva van Rooij – Laureate 2017

Eva van Rooij was the first person to discover that microRNA molecules, components of living cells which have only recently been discovered, play a role in heart diseases. She is now investigating other molecular mechanisms that affect our cardiac cells. Is it possible to influence these so as to limit damage to such cells or even reverse it? Eva van Rooij is a Biomedical Sciences laureate of the Ammodo KNAW Award 2017.
