ERC Starting Grant
Morteza Aramesh of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering and Christan Glaser of the Department of Physics and Astronomy have been awarded European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants.
Aramesh was awarded € 2 million for his research, in which he applies a new approach combining nanopore technologies with atomic force microscopy (AFM) to studying protein production and secretion from individual cells. The method makes it possible to examine how immune cells interact with cancer cells in their natural environment.
