FORTH researcher, Prof. Electra Gizeli, new elected member of the European Organization for Molecular Biology (EMBO)
This international distinction is awarded based on outstanding contribution to science and advancement of life sciences, through high-level innovative research and achievements.
New scientific data show the way to unraveling the creation of the Universe, with the participation of the Institute of Astrophysics of FORTH
The European Pulsar Timing Array joins teams worldwide in announcing compelling evidence for gravitational wave signals of Cosmological origin.
Polarization of light can provide unique information about the underlying processes in astrophysical systems” said Yannis Liodakis, lead author of the study, astronomer at FINCA and alumnus of the University of Crete
Anastasios Pavlopoulos, Principal Researcher at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (IMBB-FORTH) is awarded a Research Grant from the 2023 Human Frontiers Science Program. HFSP promotes international collaboration in basic research focused on the elucidation of the sophisticated and complex mechanisms of living organisms.
The Hellenic Molecular Oncology Network (EDIMO) received funding of approximately 4 million euros from the National Recovery and Resilience Plan “Greece 2.0”.
Major new funding from the European Research Council to the Institute for Mediterranean Studies of FORTH
Kostas Vlassopoulos, Associate Professor of Ancient History at the University of Crete and Associate Faculty Member of the Institute for Mediterranean Studies of FORTH has been selected for funding from the competitive European funding programme ERC Advanced Grant 2022.
An innovative, non-invasive optical imaging technology allows monitoring of cellular lipid metabolism in live cells and organisms, during ageing
Research was carried out at the Institutes of Molecular Biology & Biotechnology (IMBB) and Electronic Structure & Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research & Technology-Hellas (FORTH), and at the Medical School of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA
FORTH’s Researchers a step closer to unraveling the secrets of the brain function - Featured in Nature Communications Editors' Highlights
In a recent publication, featured in the prestigious scientific journal Nature Communications Editors' highlights, the team of Dr. Panayiota Poirazi, Research Director at ΙΜΒΒ, presents a new software framework that allows the incorporation of dendrites and their key mechanisms into large-scale neural network models.
Research at the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of FORTH published in the premier international scientific journal Nature Aging, reveals a fundamental quality control mechanism that operates in cells to safeguard the integrity and function of the nucleus. By maintaining nuclear homeostasis, this molecular mechanism contributes critically to promote longevity and fertility. IMBB researchers Dr. Margarita-Elena Papandreou and Dr. Georgios Konstantinidis, headed by Dr. Nektarios Tavernarakis (Professor at the Medical School, University of Crete, and Chairman of the Board at FORTH), discovered that recycling of nuclear and nucleolar components via autophagy delays ageing of somatic cells, and sustains the immortality of germ cells, which are required for reproduction.
The research team's next step, in the field of autoimmunity research, involves the design of highly specific small molecules to be tested for their ability to inhibit inflammation and autoimmunity, initially in a mouse model and later in humans.
