ERC Synergy Grant 2023: Congratulations to Prof. Dr. Kristian Franze
The European Research Council (ERC) has selected the UNFOLD project (Unfolding the dynamic interaction between mechanical and molecular processes in brain folding) as one of the 37 beneficiaries of the Synergy Grants program in 2023. This groundbreaking research project, involving the team of Prof. Dr. Kristian Franze (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Germany) in collaboration with three other international scientists from the Institute of Neuroscience (Spain), the University of Liège (Belgium), and the Pasteur Institute (France), will receive over 10 million euros in funding. Together, these four partners are placing a special focus on the intricate interplay between biological and mechanical processes that drive brain folding, contributing to a deeper understanding of brain development and formation.
A heartfelt congratulations to our project leader Kristian Franze!
