VENI grant for Aurélie Carlier
We are proud to announce MERLN's first successful VENI award to a very promising young investigator. In her proposal "Shaping the building blocks of life," Dr. Carlier will use computational techniques to investigate how cell shape can steer cell functioning. She hopes that this fundamental understanding of our basic building blocks, can be used to improve orthopaedic implants. The VENI is the first grant in the prestigious line of talent identification grants given by the Dutch Funding agency, NWO.
We look forward to Aurélie’s continuing success and the exciting results that this research will bring to the Institute.
