Three ERC Starting Grants for UCL projects

Researchers Géraldine Laloux, Corentin Claeys Bouuaert and Sylvie Nozaradan each earned a prestigious ERC Starting Grant to continue and expand their research at UCL.

  • Géraldine Laloux, currently FNRS research associate at UCL’s de Duve Institute, was awarded for her project ‘PREDATOR: Revealing the cell biology of predatory bacterium in space and time’.
  • Corentin Claeys Bouuaert, currently a postdoctoral fellow at New York’s Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, was awarded for his project ‘BrokenGenome: Breaking and rebuilding the genome: mechanistic rules for the dangerous game of sex’.
  • Sylvie Nozaradan, currently FNRS postdoctoral researcher at UCL, was awarded for her project ‘Rhythm and brains: How musical rhythm moves humans: functional mechanisms of entrainment and perception-action coupling’.

An ERC Starting Grant was also awarded to KUL’s Anne Réverseau, recently appointed FNRS scientific researcher at UCL, for her project ‘HANDLING: Writers handling pictures: a material intermediality (1880-today)’.

The European Research Council (ERC) is an instrument of the European Commission for financing promising researchers in Europe. It contributes significantly to building or strengthening a research team and acquiring state-of-the-art equipment. Thanks to these grants, ambitious research has been conducted; researchers have made major advances in their fields and added to their international reputations. We wish the same for Géraldine Laloux, Corentin Claeys Bouuaert, Sylvie Nozaradan and Anne Réverseau, whose background and research project details will soon appear on our website.
