APPENDIX TO PRESS RELEASE NWO/SPINOZA PRIZES 2008

Jury report for Prof. M.S. (Marjo) van der Knaap
Professor of Paediatric Neurology, VU University Amsterdam

Professor Van der Knaap receives the NWO/Spinoza Prize 2008 for her research into serious brain disorders in children. She diagnosed various new brain disorders using MRI and unravelled these down to the level of the responsible genes.

Marjo van der Knaap (9 May 1958, Delft) obtained a cum laude degree in medicine from the Erasmus University Rotterdam in 1984. In 1991, she obtained a cum laude PhD at the Department of Paediatric Neurology at Utrecht University in close collaboration with the Department of Neuroradiology at VU University in Amsterdam, where she has been professor of paediatric neurology since 1999.

For example, she has twice received a TOP grant from Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMW), and recently received the Sidney Carter Award of the American Academy of Neurology. She has been a member of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) since 2006.
