Nov 2018: ERC Synergy Grant for Michael Boutros

Together with three other researchers from Heidelberg, Michael Boutros has been awarded an ERC Synergy Grant worth 10.6 million euros for six years to decode the interplay of the wiring diagrams of gene activity not just for a single cell, but also for complex tissues in Arabidopsis and Drosophila. This type of ERC grant was reintroduced 2018, and only 10% of the proposals were successful. As Professor Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, president of the ERC, commented: “The selected projects represent truly daring ideas put forward by some of Europe’s top scientists.”
