Julien Vermot, laureate of the EMBO YIP Award 2013
Nov. 6, 2013
Julien Vermot joins a network of 315 current and past investigators as a laureate of the 2013 EMBO Young Investigator Programme. Like the 23 other nominated researchers across Europe, he will benefit from the various support provided by the organization, from funding for his research project to access to cutting-edge technical facilities.
As well as Evi Soutoglou, Sophie Jarriault, Maria-Elena Torres-Padilla, Roméo Ricci and Bruno Klaholz, Julien Vermot joined the club of the young and talented members of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme (YIP). The European molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) announced November the 6th, the names of the 23 new elected members of its 2013 Young Investigator Programme. This very selective award, with only 12% of success rate this year, is dedicated to help young researchers to settle their laboratory.
Since its launch in 2000, the EMBO Young Investigator Programme (YIP) selects independent scientists throughout the EMBC Member States. Young Investigators are selected for three years, during which time they are offered numerous benefits to help them establish their careers. Programme members receive extensive support to attend conferences, practical training in laboratory management, as well as privileged access to core facilities at European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL).
Julien Vermot’s group is working on the mechano-genetic interplay during embryonic morphogenesis. In particular, they are interested in biological flow dynamics and its roles during the development of the zebrafish. Julien Vermot will receive for three years 15,000 euros financial support per year as well as a substantial support for the development of his career and network.
