Perutz group leaders receive individual funding from FWF

Perutz group leaders Christa Bücker and Sascha Martens received new funding from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) for their Principal Investigator Projects (formerly known as Stand-Alone Projects). The Buecker lab will take a novel, systematic approach to investigate transcriptional enhancers, while the Martens lab will study the interplay of cargo receptors in aggrephagy, a process in which protein aggregates are selectively degraded in cells. The two projects are funded with €690,000 and €630,000, respectively.
