Final Report Summary - CHAMP RNA HELICASE (Function, Mechanism, and Regulation of Mammalian Mov10L1 RNA Helicase)
Currently this project has enabled us to develop state of the art tools and to pave the way to a new research field with very wide perspective. The impact this will have has on the lab future is very strong as our focus will now be mainly on these human RNA helicases. Therefore, this grant has really been in my opinion a breakthrough to achieve such independency and to grow into something with strong funding and publication potential.
The work and conclusions that emerges from this project will provide the basis for a major project in this field. This funding has substantially impacted the future direction of future research. Furthermore, it is now because of the bench mark we have reached, we are now expanding this project into a much greater extent and two new PhD students are being hired.
As the principle investigator of this project, this enable the well integration within the faculty and hosting institute. Moreover, specifically this integration grant has enable be to formulate a strong basis for my research group.
Furthermore, during the course of the grant award a PhD student has completed his training directly linked to this project. The manuscript which is a results of her PhD is now under review. We have presented the outcome of this research work on several scientific meetings very successfully.
