Norwegian Centre of Excellence – SFF-V application: DIA-MEC

For the past year I was involved in building up an application for a Norwegian Centre of excellence focused on investigating distinct and overlapping diabetes mechanisms all-along different life stages.

Our initial application was selected in Phase 1 that allowed us to submit an updated and comprehensive proposal, coordinated by an excellent team of experts with extensive methodologi­cal competence in clinical medicine, genomics, proteomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, bioinformatics, biochemistry, structural biology, stem cell biology and animal disease models.

Our proposal for Phase 2 was submitted on 20th of October and the results are expected sometime in June 2022. Fingers crossed!
