Lisa Herzog – Laureate
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2021

Lisa Herzog analyses how moral and democratic norms can play a greater role in our economic system. What does it mean to act morally when employees feel like small cogs in the wheel of a large organisation? Herzog explores socially relevant issues such as these, always looking at the economic system from a philosophical perspective.

Annemieke Aartsma-Rus – Laureate
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2021

Annemieke Aartsma-Rus has made an important contribution to research in Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Patients with this serious hereditary muscle disease lack the protein dystrophin, because the gene code for dystrophin is unreadable. Thanks in part to the fundamental pioneering work of Aartsma-Rus, an exon skipping therapy is now available in the USA and Japan that can make the genetic code readable again. This can slow down disease progression for Duchenne patients.

Social Educational Neuroscience Amsterdam – Winner

Social Educational Neuroscience Amsterdam – Winner
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2020

One thing is clear: we need to understand how people interact with each other and above all what motivates them to make choices in their social interactions that are positive for themselves and others as well as for future generations and the natural world. This is what the nine-member team Social Educational Neuroscience Amsterdam (SENSA) at the VU University in Amsterdam is working on. It is investigating what happens in the brains of children and adolescents during all sorts of often subconscious, social interactions, the assumption being that the sooner you understand what is going on in the young, still developing brains, the greater the chance that you, their teacher or parent, can influence them in a positive way.

Floris de Lange – Laureate

Floris de Lange – Laureate
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2021

Floris de Lange studies how human perception arises from neurobiological processes in the brain. By measuring brain activity very precisely, he determines how information “flows” through the brain. Among other things, he has shown that our brain works like a prediction machine, actively using everything it learns to predict the future. Recently, De Lange has been studying why curiosity and surprise are important to the brain.

Christian Lange – Laureate
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2021

Christian Lange studies classical Arabic and Persian literature and is a pioneer in the field of Arabic digital humanities. His innovative analysis of digitized historical texts has yielded new insights, including into how Islamic criminal law was actually applied and how the five senses were understood throughout the centuries in different intellectual Islamic traditions. Lange’s research provides a multicoloured picture of the rich Islamic civilization.

Guardians and Caretakers of the Genome – Winner

Guardians and Caretakers of the Genome – Winner
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2020

For decades the Guardians and Caretakers of the Genome research team at the Erasmus MC in Rotterdam has been focusing on how exactly cells do in fact repair themselves. What is unique about this team is that they study this process, in relation to ageing and cancer, at difference levels of complexity: In relation to cancer and ageing, for example, they are looking atfrom single individual molecules to as well as at complete physiological processes within the cell or the patient.

Jacco van Rheenen – Laureate

Jacco van Rheenen – Laureate
AMMODO ✕ Ammodo Science Award
2019

Jacco van Rheenen developed a groundbreaking form of microscopy, allowing individual cells to be tracked for weeks in a living organism. This new form of research provides valuable information about the behaviour of, and the interaction between, cells. For example, he was the first person to film the process of metastatic cancer.
