Two developmental biology projects funded for up to 5 years

The two IGBMC scientists who received ERC funding this year are in the field of developmental biology research. The two grants obtained are :

  • An ERC Consolidator Grant, won by Juliette Godin for her project to study translation as a novel level of gene regulation during cortical development.
  • An ERC Starting Grant, won by Minchul Kim for his project on syncytial cells, cells that have several nuclei. More specifically, he will investigate how these cells develop and what their functions are.
