Thomas Marichal has just been awarded a prestigious ERC Starting Grant (1.5 M€ - 5 years) to fund a project called 'IM-ID', which will investigate in depth the identity and function of a lung regulatory macrophage population that proves to be a promising novel target to treat asthma.
At the end of last week, the FNRS granted new funding for major equipment, Télévie research projects and new mandates. The zebrafish platform receives funding to improve its equipment and the cyclotron platform will improve the measurement capabilities of the 7TMRI. 14 researchers are awarded a new mandate and 10 get renewal. And finally, some twenty projects are financed by Télévie.
