Funding for two interdisciplinary projects to ‘understand biology with artificial intelligence’

In their recent call ‘Understanding biology with Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning’ the Vienna Science and Technology Fund (WWTF) approved two interdisciplinary projects with participation from Max Perutz Labs scientists. Perutz group leader Jonas Ries coordinates the project ‘DynRec’ with Jakob Macke from the University of Tübingen to investigate endocytosis. In the project ‘RiboAI’, coordinated by Ivo Hofacker from the University of Vienna, Perutz group leader Stefan Ameres studies mRNA features impacting translation and stability. Each grant is endowed with more than €799,000 for three and four years, respectively.
