Systems biology receives Euro 2,7 mill. at Chalmers BioCenter.
Engineering science at Chalmers, Sweden, is now entering a new biological era with substantial support from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
“By investing in a completely new research area, Quantitative Systems Biology, we are seeking to learn more about the network of biology and nature’s engineering in order to change current industrial processes and create new processes,” says Gunnar Bjursell, Professor of Molecular Biology at Göteborg University and head of the Chalmers Biocenter.
“We are naturally extremely pleased to receive confirmation that we are investing correctly in choosing to enter this new and highly topical research area,” says Gunnar Bjursell.
Together with the co-ordinator, Catharina Hiort, he conducts the strategy and development work at the Chalmers Biocenter.
The funding, SEK 25 million from the Wallenberg Foundation, will reinforce the investment the Chalmers Biocenter has already made. The new funding will contribute to building biology laboratories at Chalmers, equipping them with the very latest analysis instruments, extending Chalmers’ capacity to design and calculate biological models on a computer and to employ research personnel. The grant from the Wallenberg Foundation offers the Biocenter the opportunity to broaden its operations.
