Big news today! The lab will get 5 years funding from the European Research Council, which will allow us to recruit new people, in particular postdocs, and do super cool research on spiralians! I'm very thrilled for this big opportunity and for the exciting years to come. Also very grateful for the support that my colleagues at Queen Mary University of London and School of Biological and Chemical Sciences gave me during all the application process. Clearly, these big accomplishments cannot be done alone, but with the support of many. The lab will try to give back as much as possible of this help and collegiality, contributing to push the already excellent research conducted at Queen Mary a bit forward!
