ERC Starting Grant
Jul 13, 2012Panayiota Poirazi, a researcher in the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), was recently awarded the prestigious Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) for her proposal entitled "Dissecting the role of dendrites in memory".
The longest deployment of the Zeppelin NT for climate research so far was officially launched on May 4th in a campaign coordinated by scientists from Julic
May 23, 20124 May 2012 The longest deployment of the Zeppelin NT for climate research so far was officially launched today in a campaign coordinated by scientists from Julich. For a total of twenty weeks, the airship will fly across Europe to measure the composition of the air above the Netherlands, Italy, the Adriatric and finally, in 2013, Finland.
Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology reveals similarities in the development of insect and vertebrate body segments
Mar 08, 2012Work by researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) in Greece, whose results are published today in the journal Science, reveals that the repeated parts of animal bodies for example the vertebrae in our spine are generated by a similar mechanism not only among vertebrates (fish, birds, mammals, etc.) but also in our more distant relatives, the insects.
IMBB researchers reveal a novel function for Nucleotide Excision Repair in mammalian development
Feb 09, 2012Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology-FORTH and published today in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences USA reveals that proteins involved in Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER) activate the expression of key growth factors during postnatal development.
