Congratulations to Martin Lind who won Swedish Research Council (VR) grant for young PIs!

Martin spend four years as a postdoctoral fellow and researcher in our lab and now he has got the largest grant among those awarded for young investigators this round (4.7 M SEK in total over a period of 4 years).

In his project, Martin  will investigate the role of environmental heterogeneity for life history evolution and how growth, development and reproduction affects lifespan and ageing in the nematode worm Caenorhabditis remanei.

This funding will enable Martin to start his own lab as an independent young PI and he will soon start recruiting!
