First EBMO Installation Grant to set up independent laboratory in Lithuania
On 12 January, a message was received that the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO) had awarded a substantial grant to the researcher of Warwick University Dr. Algirdas Toleikis. It is the first grant of this sort for a Lithuanian researcher.
According to the young scientist Dr. A. Toleikis, this support opens up the way for him to return to Lithuania and gives the opportunity to establish a new research laboratory in his native country, at the Life Sciences Center of Vilnius University.
The grant is supported by the Research Council of Lithuania with the aim of strengthening the life sciences there.
