Five iNANO associated researchers receive grants to promote Danish basic research
The Novo Nordisk Foundation grants a total of DKK 13.6 million to five iNANO associated researchers. The purpose of the grants is to support basic research at the highest international level. Congratulations to Brigitte Städler, Julián Valero Moreno, Mie Andersen, Troels Skrydstrup, and Menglin Chen.
Five iNANO associated researchers receive a total of DKK 13.6 million under the Novo Nordisk Foundation's "Project Grants in the Natural and Technical Sciences".
The purpose of the program is to promote Danish basic research at the highest international level within the natural sciences and technology - especially for projects with potential interdisciplinary applications within life science, health science or sustainability.
The five iNANO associated research projects that receive support are:
- Associate Professor Brigitte Stadler, Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO), receives DKK 2,994,630 for the project "Engineered Lipid Droplets as Semi-Synthetic Intracellular Organelles".
- Assistant Professor Julián Valero Moreno, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics & iNANO, receives DKK 2,999,830 for the project "A new class of artificial enzymes and nanoreactors made of DNA".
- Professor Troels Skrydstrup, Department of Chemistry, & iNANO receives DKK 2,993,489 for the project "Development of a Molecular Surgery Strategy for Carbon Isotope Labelling".
- Associate Professor Mie Andersen from the Department of Physics and Astronomy & iNANO receive DKK 2,635,763 DKK for the project "Data-Driven Modeling of Oxide Catalysis", which takes place at AIAS.
- Associate Professor Menglin Chen from Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering & iNANO receive DKK 2,998,664 for the project "Bio-sourced polymer-based 3D nanogenerators as implantable electronics"
See the overview of the total of 23 projects that receive support. Nine of them take place at Aarhus University.
