Eight scientists awarded EMBO Installation Grants

10.12.2014

EMBO announces the selection of eight scientists as recipients of the 2014 Installation Grants. The grants will help the scientists to relocate and set up laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal and Turkey.

“Our grants directly support young scientists going to participating member states to establish their own research groups. The awards help talented researchers to contribute to the strengthening of science in these countries and to build a successful research programme that can help to promote further collaborations,” said Gerlind Wallon, Installation Grants Programme Manager and EMBO Deputy Director.

Of the grantees three will move to Turkey, two to the Czech Republic, two to Portugal and one to Poland. They will relocate to these countries from institutes and universities in Canada, Germany and the United States.

EMBO Installation Grants are awarded annually to strengthen science in selected Member States. The scheme is supported by these countries and a committee of EMBO Members selects the awardees.

The scientists receive 50,000 Euros annually for three to five years from their host countries. The eight grantees will also enter the network of EMBO Young Investigators, which helps them to integrate into the European scientific community.

71 group leaders have received support through EMBO Installation Grants since the start of the programme in 2006.

The next application deadline for EMBO Installation Grants is 15 April 2015.

EMBO is an organization of more than 1700 leading researchers that promotes excellence in the life sciences. The major goals of the organization are to support talented researchers at all stages of their careers, stimulate the exchange of scientific information, and help build a European research environment where scientists can achieve their best work.

EMBO helps young scientists to advance their research, promote their international reputations and ensure their mobility. Courses, workshops, conferences and scientific journals disseminate the latest research and offer training in techniques to maintain high standards of excellence in research practice. EMBO helps to shape science and research policy by seeking input and feedback from our community and by following closely the trends in science in Europe.

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
