ERC-consolidator granted to our lab to find noncoding cancer drivers

We are happy to announce that our lab has been awarded an European Research Council Consolidator Grant.

ERC-consolidator grants are designed “To fund top researchers of any nationality and age, with over 7 and up to 12 years of experience after PhD, and a scientific track record showing great promise. The sole evaluation criterion for this grants: scientific excellence of researcher and research proposal”

The project that received the ERC,  named “NONCODRIVERS” aims at identifying mutations involved in tumour development in non-coding regions. It is set to start in 2016 and to last for five years.

If you are interested in working in our lab stay tuned: we will open Postdoc positions soon to work on the ERC project.

Just have a look below at what we intend to do within the project in the coming five years.
