BioCity Turku collaborative research funding call 2021
We received 56 excellent applications and they were all evaluated by two reviewers. BioCity Turku decides for now to fund the following seven applications
Camilo Guzman ”Connect to analyze – centralized workstation for bioimage data analysis”
Guillaume Jaquemet ”Establishing an imaging platform to study endothelial cell signaling upon shear stress”
Otto Kauko ”Single-cell proteotranscriptomics”
Ilkka Paatero ”Modelling cardiovascular and cancer biology in zebrafish”
Emilia Peuhu ”SECRETomics of the human breast epithelium”
Pekka Ruusuvuori ”Collaborative interface for digital and computational pathology”
Mervi Toriseva ”Digital matchmaker tool for medical and biomedical research professionals”
Since we got so many excellent applications we might be in contact with some of the runner-ups next autumn to offer funding for their projects.
Congratulations for the winners!
BioCity Turku is an umbrella organization supporting and coordinating life science and molecular medicine related research in the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University.
The two universities share one campus area in a historical location of the city of Turku (est. 1229). The same campus additionally houses the Turku University Central Hospital and the THL (The National Institute for Health and Welfare) Turku unit. Research groups working in these organizations are also active members in the BioCity Turku research programmes.
The existence of one compact, multidisciplinary campus area is the major strength of science in Turku and, in this magnitude, is also unique in Finland. The geographical structure of our campus presents us with an optimal platform for inter-disciplinary collaboration and to facilitate the integration of science.
