Cristea, Brody win Human Frontier Science Program Awards
Ileana Cristea was awarded a 2009 Human Frontier Science Program Young Investigator Grant for the project “A hybrid approach to revealing intermediate structures of Herpes Simplex Virus during infection.” Her collaborators on this research are Frank Alber (USA), Kay Grunewald (Germany) and Maya Topf (UK). Young Investigators' Grants are awarded to teams of researchers, all of whom are within the first five years after obtaining an independent laboratory (e.g. Assistant Professor, Lecturer or equivalent).
Carlos Brody received a Program Grant from HFSP, which are awarded to teams of independent researchers at any stage of their careers. The research team is expected to develop new lines of research through the collaboration. Brody and his collaborators (Carl Petersen in Switzerland, Edward Callaway in the USA, and Mathew Diamond in Italy) are working on "Decoding and Recoding Sensation."
An associate of Molecular Biology, Stan Svartsman, also received a Program Grant.
