Matteo Berti, Research Assistant in the laboratory of Alessandro Vindigni, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Biochemistry, has been awarded a short-term fellowship from the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). The fellowship will allow Matteo to spend two months in Zurich, Switzerland to learn state-of-the-art electron microscopy approaches to visualize DNA replication intermediates. The overall purpose of the short-term fellowships is to support joint research work and enable collaborations between research groups in other countries. The fellowship covers travel and subsistence for the awardee.
EMBO was established in 1964 and is now comprised of more than 1,500 researchers. EMBO aims to support researchers in all stages of their careers, to facilitate information exchange through courses, workshops and conferences, and provide training and collaboration opportunities.
