Elise Kortink receives grant

Research Master student Elise Kortink received the award (€2250) for her research proposal to investigate whether neural measures of attachment problems may predict the consequences of these problems later in life. The jury considered her proposal to be the best and most creative. Earlier, Elise received a LISF grant to carry out this research at the Yale Child Study Center in the US, and the Fruin-Helb award allows Elise to continue this research at Leiden University. Elise is affiliated as a research master student with the Social Anxiety and School Refusal lab, and is supervised by Melle van der Molen during her master thesis and research internship.
