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.


BILAT-USA (Grant Agreement no: 244434) and Link2US (Grant Agreement no: 244371) Projects are co-funded by the European Union’s Capacities Programme on International Cooperation under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Cooperation.
