Assoc. Prof. Madoka Suzuki and his colleagues have been awarded a research grant (Program Grant) from the Human Frontier Science Program (HFSP) for their proposal, “Nanoscale heat transfer phenomena: new paradigm for intra- and intercellular signalling and shaping”.
About HFSP (from HFSP website)
“The Human Frontier Science Program is an international program of research support implemented by the International Human Frontier Science Program Organization (HFSPO) based in Strasbourg, France. Its aims are to promote intercontinental collaboration and training in cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research focused on the life sciences. HFSPO receives financial support from the governments or research councils of Australia, Canada, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore, Switzerland, UK, USA, as well as from the European Union.”
About the project
The team led by Taras Plakhotnik (Australia) in collaboration with Dr. Vadim Zeeb (Russia), Prof. Ellen Birgitte Lane (Singapore) and Dr. Madoka Suzuki (Japan) will study the role of heat in three-dimensional cell shaping and differentiation.
