Dr. Zhenyu Gao got awarded the prestigious ERC Staring Grant!

We are proud to announce that Dr. Zhenyu Gao received the prestigious ERC starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC).

 

For this ERC funded project Dr. Gao will focus on deciphering the anatomical, physiological and molecular properties of cerebellar nuclei neurons. This effort will eventually help us to understand how cerebellar outputs are determined by their differential functional demands of sensorimotor tasks, and shed light on the cerebellar control of different brain regions.

 

The highly-coveted ERC funding will help 408 individual scientists and scholars to build their own teams and conduct pioneering research across all disciplines. The grants, worth in total €621 million, are part of the EU’ Research and Innovation programme, Horizon 2020.
