Thursday, 30th March 2023

CBNI is delighted to announce that (opens in a new window)Professor Kenneth Dawson has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for his project FunctionalNanoTher.

Professor Dawson said: “The ERC Advanced Grant will allow us to push far beyond the boundaries of our current understanding, following new and bolder scientific concepts of RNA (and other nanoscale) therapeutics that will target currently intractable diseases, safely. Such a focussed and ambitious scientific effort owes much to the persistent efforts of our group’s dedicated staff and young researchers over some years.During that period the ideaswere built up and validated, step by step.It also owes much toa critical and timely Science Foundation Ireland (SFI)-ERC support grant that allowed us to establish that the program has good prospects for success.”
