US scientist clinches ERC Advanced Grant
Mar 25, 2011
American scientist Juleen R. Zierath is one of the few women to be awarded an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC), the EU funding body which seeks to attract leading researchers from around the world to work in Europe. One of the most important goals of the ERC is to foster brilliant ideas beyond the frontiers of knowledge, not only making Europe a research hub for scientists but also encouraging brain circulation. Appointed professor of clinical integrative physiology at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden, Professor Zierath said she found the best environment for her research at the Swedish institute.
