Rachel Muheim and Helena Westerdahl both got 4-year grants from VR for their projects: "Behavioural and physiological mechanisms of magnetic compass orientation and polarized light sensitivity in birds" and " Optimal immunity for both females and males - is it possible?".

Karin Rengefors was one out of 204 researchers who recieved money from FORMAS for projects whose aim is the promotion of a sustainable development from different perspectives. Karin's project - ”A natural phenomenon turned nasty: Where, when, and why will cyanobacterial blooms be toxic?” – will be financed for 3 years.

To top this off, Helena Westerdahl also got one of the prestigeous ERC Starting Grants – supporting ” up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe.” This grant will support Helenas research on immunity genes in songbirds for 5 years.

Congratulations to all!
