Travel Award 2016
We are pleased to announce the winner of the Diagnostics 2016 Travel Award, Dr. Jan Van den Stock, who will be supported with 800 Swiss Francs towards his travel expenses to attend international conferences
Dr. Jan Van den Stock is a clinical psychologist and post-doctoral FWOfellow at KU Leuven, Belgium. His professional track record consists of a combination of research and clinical activities. His research focuses on the behavioral and neural correlates of socio-emotional processing in neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Van den Stock combined his PhD-track with neuropsychological work in ambulant and residential neurology and psychiatry settings. In 2010, he obtained his PhD (Bodies and background: Contextual influences on perception of emotional body expressions). For his first postdoc term (FWO), he moved back from the Netherlands (Tilburg University) to Leuven and co-founded the laboratory headed by Prof. Dr. Mathieu Vandenbulcke to build on the work of his PhD. He investigated the behavioral and neural underpinnings of emotion and body perception in normal and clinical populations using psychophysical and functional and structural imaging [(f)MRI] techniques. Currently, Dr. Van den Stock is in the fifth year of his post-doc track. He has (co)authored 37 peer-reviewed articles and they are frequently cited (H-index = 15, according to Web of Science) and include recommendation by Faculty of 1000 (http://f1000.com/prime/13339967).
We wish to congratulate Dr. Jan Van den Stock for his accomplishments.
