Furthermore, at the Grants Office, we also offer project management- and coordination of granted projects (both national and EU-funded).
My main focus area is research grants from the European Research Council (ERC) under the ‘Excellent Science’ pillar of Horizon2020. These grants include ERC Starting Grants, ERC Consolidator Grants and ERC Advanced Grants. I can help researchers at every step of the application process from concept formulation, grant writing and reviewing, to mock interviews and grant application administration.
I have an extensive basic- and biomedical research background within life science, molecular biology and neuroscience. I received my PhD in 2007 at University of Edinburgh, UK. My PhD and first post-doc, also in Edinburgh, focused on elucidating mechanisms of chromosome segregation (PLoS Genetics 2007, PLoS Genetics 2009, Current Biology 2013, Genes and Development 2014). In 2012 I moved to Sweden to pursue research in the Division of Hematopoiesis and Development Biology, headed by Stefan Thor, where my research focus was on sub-neuronal mechanisms of neurodegeneration (DMM 2017, Biology Open 2017).
