Prof. Andreas Milias-Argeitis of the Groningen Biomolecular Sciences and Biotechnology Institute ( GBB , University of Groningen) has been awarded an Open Competition Science-M grant by the Dutch Research Council (NWO). He receives an M1 grant of EUR 350,000 for his project ‘Mapping the effects of growth regulators on cell cycle progression’.

M-grants are intended for innovative, high quality, fundamental research and / or studies involving matters of scientific urgency. The M-grant offers researchers the possibility to elaborate creative and risky ideas and to realise scientific innovations that can form the basis for the research themes of the future.

The effect of proteins that regulate cell growth

Cell growth and division are fundamental processes, whose proper coordination is essential for cell viability and the health of an organism. However, we still do not fully understand how this coordination arises. In this project, Andreas Milias-Argeitis will investigate how the proteins that regulate cell growth are also able to affect key events of the division cycle. To this end, he will generate a detailed map of these interactions via a combination of single-cell experiments and mathematical modeling. The research will contribute to the understanding of fundamental cellular processes which are ultimately linked with human health.
