April 25, 2024

Yayouk Willems, research scientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, has been awarded the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship by the European Commission.  

This award allows her to continue her collaboration with Laurel Raffington, group leader of the Max Planck Research Group Biosocial - Biology, Social Disparities, and Development. They will analyze data from the “Baby’s First Years Study“, a randomized controlled trial where mothers receive monthly cash gifts during their child’s first six years of life. Their research will focus on the effects of these cash gifts in early childhood on children’s epigenetic profiles of health and well-being.  

With the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Fellowship, the European Commission supports researchers from all disciplines with funding of up to 200 000 euros over two years. The funding supports postdoctoral researchers in their careers and international research.  

Further information on the Fellowship can be found on the website of the European Commission.
