ERC Proof-of-Concept (ERC-PoC) grant for Prof.dr. G.J. Poelarends

19 January 2016

Prof.dr. G.J. Poelarends (Pharmaceutical Biology, GRIP) was awarded a Proof of Concept grant from the EU. The Proof of Concept funding helps ERC grant holders bridge the gap between their research and the earliest stage of a marketable innovation.
Prof Poelarends received his grant for SynBioGABA: Development of a new biosynthesis procedure for an important class of drug molecules. This research project concentrates on the development of a new biosynthesis procedure that can be used to manufacture drugs. This procedure makes use of promiscuous tautomerases, enzymes that have extraordinary catalytic properties due to their unique structure.
