Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowships to DanStem researchers


Two postdocs from Kristian Helin’s group and one from Kim Jensen’s group have received the prestigious EU Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) fellowships.

The MSCA aim to equip researchers with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector. The programme responds to the challenges sometimes faced by researchers, offering them attractive working conditions and the opportunity to move between academic and other settings.

The following scientists were successful to receive the grant

Lucia Simón-Carrasco (Helin group)
Project: Mechanisms of TET2 DNA demethylase recruitment to specific genomic regions

Petros Kolovos (Helin group)
Project: The identification of the combinatorial transcription factor network exerting different roles in hematopoietic stem cells

Christina Müller (Jensen group)
Project: Infection of the human intestine by enteroviruses: A CRISPR-based screening approach
