Patti Valkenburg is one out of the five co-principal investigators of a proposal entitled “Individual development: Why some children thrive and others don’t”. Utrecht University is the lead organization. Other co-PIs of the project are  professors Chantal Kemner (main applicant, Utrecht University), Dorret Boomsa (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), Marian Joëls and Sarah Durston (Medical Center University Utrecht) and Marinus van IJzendoorn (University Leiden). Three of those researchers are Spinoza Prize laureates, the highest scientific award in the Netherlands.

The scholars in the consortium will aim on the interplay between genetic and environmental factors on children’s  social adjustment.  Because the media play an ever more important role in children’s lives, CcaM researchers will focus on the interplay between genetic factors and media use on the development of children.
