With this award, we aim to inspire young scientists involved in any aspect of diabetes research. These researchers are encouraged to come up with brilliant, high-quality research proposals. The awarded proposal has to be innovative, should comprise a clear hypothesis and deliver results relevant to -and applicable in- the field of diabetes mellitus. A budget encompassing the main issues should also be part of the proposal.
The winner of the Prof. dr. J. Terpstra Young Investigator Award will receive 10.000,- Euro which should be spent completely to the research outlined in the awarded proposal. The awardee will also receive a token of remembrance. During the award session, which will be scheduled during the Annual Dutch Diabetes Research Meeting, the awardee will present the winning research proposal.
