Manuel Melo has been awarded a Veni grant

19 July 2013

NWO press release

NWO has awarded Dr. Manuel Melo a Veni grant for his research proposal on anti-microbial peptides. Dr. Manuel Melo wants to elucidate the complex behaviour of how these peptides enter microbial membranes and subsequently disrupt them by using a combination of molecular dynamics simulations and experimental work.

The Veni grant is awarded to outstanding young researchers. It consists of a 250 000 euro scholarship which enables young scientists to conduct independent research and develop their ideas for a period of three years.

See the interview of Dr. Melo with our local student newspaper: "The-least-I-owe-them-is-a-big-party"
