New Year Greetings
ERAB would like to take this opportunity to wish you a prosperous and succesful 2012.
2011 Grants Awarded
ERAB is pleased to announce the funding of eight new grants starting in 2012 and would like to congratulate the successful researchers.
ERAB Received a record 50 applications this year. They were of outstandingly high quality and deciding which to fund was, as always, really difficult. ERAB would like to thank the external reviewers who completed review forms for the applications which helped the Advisory Board to identify the best applications with regard to the clarity of the hypothesis, the merit of the science, the calibre of the team and the appropriateness of the budget.
These projects will be starting in January 2012.
