In the more than 30 years that ICGEB has been providing Funding opportunities through its CRP (Collaborative Research Programme) Grants, reviewers single-out 1 or 2 outstanding proposals particularly worthy of recognition.
This year, our external reviewers selected two CRPs considered to be outstanding and thus deserving to be highlighted on the ICGEB Website:
Principal Investigator: Dr. José M. Estevez, Fundación Instituto Leloir-FIL (IIBBA-CONICET), Buenos Aires, Argentina has won a prize for his lab’s project entitled: Masters molecular regulators of polarized growth in plant cells.
Principal Investigator: Dr. Vjekoslav Tomaić, Ruder Bošković Institute, Zagreb, Croatia has won a prize for his lab’s project entitled: Biological factors determining Human Papillomavirus (HPV) driven carcinogenesis.
The CRP Grants, represent a dedicated source of funding aimed at financing projects addressing original scientific problems of particular relevance for the host country and of regional interest. Our two prize-winners are deemed to have made outstanding progress during the course of their ICGEB funded projects.
A steadily increasing number of applications are received from our Member States each year. In 2020 these numbered over 560 proposals from 52 ICGEB Member States. Of these, over 100 proposals were received specifically related to Covid19 research.
ICGEB CRP Grants remain one of the Organisation’s most popular programmes and enjoy worldwide recognition amongst awardee scientists.
