The Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown houses seven researchers who have been awarded ERC grants: Megan Carey, Rui Costa, Zachary Mainen, Marta Moita, Eduardo Moreno, Noam Shemesh and Henrique Veiga-Fernandes. Each of these researchers works on distinct topics ranging from discovering molecular mechanisms of cell selection and elimination (Moreno) to studying the neural circuits that coordinate locomotion (Carey). Below, you can find more information about these individual researchers and their work.
Rui Costa received an ERC Consolidator grant in 2014 to study the neural bases of action chunking in the brain. He also received an ERC Starting grant in 2010 and an ERC Proof of Concept grant in 2016. Bio | Related news
