CONGRATULATIONS TO THE FESSH BASIC RESEARCH GRANT 2021 WINNER!
Dr van der Stok's project on developing a new treatment for advanced Kienböck's disease is awarded the 2021 FESSH Basic Research Grant. The project utilizes patient-specific 3D-printed lunate prosthesis models to replace the collapsed lunate bone and restore
wrist kinematics. Advanced techniques that are increasingly used to to mirror contralateral bone structures are used to design the patient specific implants. Placed in situ, these implants are assessed for functionality with the use of 4D CT scans. Dr van
der Stok's CV, where he has shown determination to be a strong future clinician-scientist and his interesting translational science project, makes him a good candidate for this grant.
Congratulation to the team of dr van der Stok!
