Congratulation to Peter Dráber who has been awarded EMBO Installation Grant
Nine researchers receive EMBO Installation Grants to establish independent laboratories. One of them is Peter Dráber (BIOCEV, First Faculty of Medicine, Charles University) with the project "Search for new therapeutic targets to modulate the immune system."
Heidelberg 15 January 2020 – EMBO is pleased to announce that nine life scientists have been selected to receive Installation Grants, which will support them in establishing independent laboratories in the Czech Republic, Poland, Portugal and Turkey.
“All nine researchers have demonstrated their ability to conduct outstanding scientific research, and we are delighted to welcome them to the EMBO community,” says EMBO Director Maria Leptin.
The EMBO Installation Grants promote the international mobility of scientists, with applicants being required to have spent at least two consecutive years outside the country in which they are establishing their laboratory. The purpose of the grants is to encourage young group leaders to establish their laboratories in countries that find it difficult to compete scientifically with large well-funded research centres in other countries.
“It is our goal to promote excellence in life sciences across all thirty EMBC Member States and beyond,” says Maria Leptin. “We look forward to supporting these talented life scientists at this important stage in their careers, and to contributing to a thriving life science community across all of Europe.”
Installation Grantees receive funding of 50,000 euros per year for three to five years. They also become part of the EMBO Young Investigator Network, through which they gain access to a range of training and networking opportunities.
