George A. Garinis, Associate Professor of Genetics at the department of Biology, University of Crete and an affiliated Researcher at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) of FORTH- Hellas has been awarded today the prestigious EMBO Young Investigator award for his research achievements on delineating the functional role of Nucleotide Excision Repair factors in development and disease
International Award to the Acropolis Museum and FORTH for the laser cleaning of Caryatids
The Acropolis Museum and the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) have been awarded the biennial Keck Award by the International Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (IIC) for their common project regarding Laser rejuvenation of Caryatids opens to the public at the Acropolis Museum: A link between ancient and modern Greece. The award was given jointly to the team of the Acropolis Museum / the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas and for their contribution towards the promotion of public understanding and appreciation of the accomplishments of the conservation profession. The ceremony took place on Friday 14th of September 2012, at the closing session of the biennial IIC congress in Vienna, which attracted 350 delegates.
IMBB researchers uncover a universal and potent protective mechanism against neuronal necrosis.
Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, published today in the premier international scientific journal Nature, reveals a novel molecular mechanism that strongly and generally defends against necrotic cell death triggered by extreme temperature and multiple other insults.
Best Paper Award at the RuleML'12 international conference to researchers of theInstitute of Computer Science of FORTH
The paper entitled "A Production Rule-Based Framework for Causal and Epistemic Reasoning", presented by researchers of the Institute of Computer Science (ICS) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), received the Best Paper Award at the 6th International Symposium on Rules (RuleML'12, Montpellier, France, August 2012).
ERC Starting Grant
Panayiota Poirazi, a researcher in the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), was recently awarded the prestigious Starting Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) for her proposal entitled "Dissecting the role of dendrites in memory".
The longest deployment of the Zeppelin NT for climate research so far was officially launched on May 4th in a campaign coordinated by scientists from Julic
4 May 2012 The longest deployment of the Zeppelin NT for climate research so far was officially launched today in a campaign coordinated by scientists from Julich. For a total of twenty weeks, the airship will fly across Europe to measure the composition of the air above the Netherlands, Italy, the Adriatric and finally, in 2013, Finland.
Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology reveals similarities in the development of insect and vertebrate body segments
Work by researchers at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) in Greece, whose results are published today in the journal Science, reveals that the repeated parts of animal bodies for example the vertebrae in our spine are generated by a similar mechanism not only among vertebrates (fish, birds, mammals, etc.) but also in our more distant relatives, the insects.
IMBB researchers reveal a novel function for Nucleotide Excision Repair in mammalian development
Research carried out at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology-FORTH and published today in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences USA reveals that proteins involved in Nucleotide Excision Repair (NER) activate the expression of key growth factors during postnatal development.
