Our very own Koen Vervaeke was awarded an ERC starting grant today. This is fantastic news and will open up for establishing a whole team of researchers.
The title of the project is “The role of 5HT3a inhibitory interneurons in sensory processing”.
About the starting grants from the ERC website: “ERC Starting Grants aim to support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe. The scheme targets promising researchers who have the proven potential of becoming independent research leaders. It will support the creation of excellent new research teams.”
