EU Horizon 2020 Grant for Mary Herbert

Mary Herbert, together with Rolf Jessberger (Technische Universität, Dresden), Christer Höög (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm) and Donal O'Carroll (moving soon to Edinburgh University), have been awarded a major Horizon 2020 grant from the European Union to study "The aging germ cell – biological pathways, risk factors and mechanisms underlying an increasing medical and socio-economic problem". The main objective of the award, titled "GermAge", is to understand the devastating decline in germ cell quality during aging, and thus to define the determinants, pathways and risk factors for age-dependent infertility, aneuploidy and inherited diseases.
