Collaborative grant for flavivirus research

The Swedish Research Council has decided to award a 25.2 MSEK grant to a coalition of research groups at Umeå University and the University of Helsinki within the call “Research environment grant within infection and antibiotics”.

The project “Multimodal imaging and proteomics to study flavivirus replication and molecular disease mechanisms” is headed by flavivirologist Anna Överby Wernstedt and also includes the groups of Richard Lundmark and Lars-Anders Carlson. The Överby, Lundmark and Carlson labs are in three different departments but we are all affiliated with the Umeå Centre for Microbial Research. The coalition also includes Prof. Sarah Butcher at the University of Helsinki, Finland.
