25 June 2012
The German Liver Foundation awards this year five scientists with grants designed to promote research exchange between hepatology research institutions. Dr. Denise Heim, scientist of the CRC 841, is one of the awardees. She receives the grant with her project “Effects of retroviral induced DNA-damage response on the transformation of human hepatocytes” for a research stay at the Goldyne Savad Institute of Gene Therapy at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The numerous applications were judged by an independent committee of external experts to which Herr Prof. Dr. Hans Peter Dienes, Vienna, Herr Prof. Michael Roggendorf, Essen, and Herr Prof. Dr. Ansgar Lohse, spokesman of the CRC 841, belong. “I am very pleased with this year’s applications that were made for very ambitious and promising projects”, summarises Lohse.

The grants of the German Liver Foundation allow scientists to carry out their clinical or basic research projects in other research institutions. The funds can be used for travel costs, accommodation or consumables at the host research institution.
