On 21 April 2015 the President of the Lazio Region, Nicola Zingaretti, held a press conference in the Sala dellaBandiere of the European Parliament in Rome to present the winners of the call for research projects launched by the Region in 2014.
The EBRIproject entitled “Super resolution microscopy: a new technology for the study and dissemination of the cellular and molecular dynamics in biomedical research”, was among the 20 ones selected.
EBRI will receive 225,000 Euro for developing a highly specialized technological platform in the field of the super resolution microscopy to foster synergy between basic and clinical research among Institutes of the Lazio Region.
The new super-resolution microscope STORM (STochastic Optical Recontruction Microscopy) will improve the quality of the research, attract funds, as well as qualified human resources and scientific competitiveness. The use of a cutting edge microscopy will also allow for an in depth study of the molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying many incurable diseases, thereby opening new horizons for their treatment.
