New ERC Starting grant: NanoVirus

Published on September 07, 2017

Prof. Dr David Alsteens is receiving a prestigious grant from the European Research Council (ERC), an ERC Starting Grant for excellent young researchers. The approximately 2 million euros will allow to combine atomic force microscopy with super-resolution confocal microscopy to study virus entry mechanisms for the next five years. His project entitled «Deciphering virus-host interactions using correlated confocal-atomic force microscopy» (NanoVirus) is scheduled to start in January 2018.
