University of Basel, 07 December 2015. European Funding for Three Investigators from the University of Basel

Three researchers from the University of Basel have successfully applied for a starting grant of the European Research Council (ERC): Biomedical specialist Dr. Nicola Aceto, mathematician Professor Gianluca Crippa and physicist Professor Philipp Treutlein will receive funding of up to 1.7 million Euros over the next five years. In addition, the Swiss National Science Foundation will compensate neurophysiologist Professor Tania Rinaldi Barkat for the ERC Starting Grant which she was not able to transfer to the University of Basel, due to Switzerland’s temporary third country status.
