Prof Claudio Stern awarded one of seven Advanced Grants from ERC

4 January 2010

Prof Claudio Stern, Head of CDB, is one of seven UCL researchers awarded Advanced Grants worth in excess of £13 million from the European Research Council.

Prof Claudio Stern Michael Browne, Head of European Research and Development at UCL said: “These grants are designed to allow exceptional established research leaders in any field of science, engineering and scholarship to pursue risk-taking, interdisciplinary and pioneering research. The Advanced Grant scheme, in particular, is highly competitive (with an overall success rate of seven percent) and highly prestigious.”

 Prof Stern's research project is: Gene networks controlling embryonic polarity, regulation and twinning. Using a multidisciplinary approach involving comparative genomics, bioinformatics, experimental embryology and genetics, the project will uncover the gene regulatory network responsible for how the embryo determines its head-tail polarity and the mecahnisms that normally prevent the formation of conjoined (‘Siamese’) and monozygotic (identical) twins in humans and higher vertebrates.
