European Research Council supports search for regulators of tissue damage
Date:1/27/2012

this is that current available therapy is directed almost exclusively at clearing the pathogens causing these diseases, with no regard to controlling tissue damage. Our research directly addresses the hypothesis that controlling tissue damage should also be considered as a crucial arm in fighting infectious diseases. We expect to identify therapeutic targets to obtain that effect".

The ERC Advanced Grants are awarded to "exceptional", established researchers, to "pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains", on the basis of scientific excellence alone, across three research domains. In the 2011 competition, 294 of 2284 applications are to be funded (corresponding to a success rate of 12%).

Of the 20 applications from scientists working in Portugal, two were selected: Miguel Soares' team, in life sciences, and another in social sciences and humanities. This is only the second ERC Advanced Grant to be awarded to a senior life scientist working in Portugal, and both have gone to IGC researchers. Furthermore, of the 18 ERC grants awarded to scientists working in Portugal, across all research domains and all levels of funding (staring and advanced), seven have been awarded to IGC scientists.
