Congratulations to PhD student Marian Dryzhakov, who has received a fellowship from JSPS to conduct postdoctoral research with Prof. Makoto Fujita at the University of Tokyo.
Joseph has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant (1.5 million €)! The award will allow us to pursue our dream to create reaction networks that resemble biological metabolism. Informal inquiries regarding doctoral and postdoctoral positions related to this project are encouraged at any time. See the related article in the university newsletter and the announcement from LabEx CSC (both in French only). Funding for the project will begin in September 2015.
