ERC Consolidator grant for Chirlmin Joo and Pouyan Boukany
This year, two ERC Consolidator grants have been awarded to TU Delft researchers. Pouyan Boukany wants to learn when, how and why metastatic tumour cells detach form a tumour. Chirlmin Joo wants to develop a new gene editing tool based on a system found in a single-celled organism.
Below is a summary of the projects:
Researcher: Dr. Pouyan Boukany, faculty of AS, Chemical Engineering
Project title: FANCY: Flow and Deformation of Cancer tumours near Yielding
Researcher: Dr. Chirlmin Joo, faculty of AS, Bionanoscience
Project title: MIGHTY RNA: Repurposing Small RNA from Ciliates for Genome Editing
