EMBO supports restart of six female scientists at the bench

The first six fellows to benefit from the European Molecular Biology Organization's (EMBO) new restart fellowship scheme are preparing to start work in their laboratories. The selected researchers come from Germany, Hungary, the UK and Italy. They will restart their research careers on full-time EMBO fellowships that cover a two-year period.

"The restart fellowships offer scientists an excellent opportunity to return to the laboratory. EMBO hopes that this programme will help to counteract the losses to science and research caused by scientists leaving to start a family," says Gerlind Wallon, EMBO Restart Programme Manager. "Judging by the number of inquiries received, there is a great deal of interest in the scheme. And we have already had a lot of applications from really excellent scientists. This shows the need for initiatives like this in Europe."

The first six awardees are:

  • Katja Arndt, who began research last month on the 'Design, Selection, Analysis and Targeting of Antiparallel Coiled Coils' at the University of Freiburg (Germany) in the Institute of Molecular Biology and Genetics (Biology III). Dr. Arndt is the mother of twins and is returning to the laboratory after a one-year break.

  • Barbara Belletti will be starting her research in January 2003 after a break of 18 months. The Italian researcher has two daughters and will be continuing her work in cancer research at the Centro di Riferimento Oncologico of the National Cancer Institute in Aviano, Italy. She will be working on the 'Role of IGF-I Receptor in adhesion and migration of soft tissue sarcoma derived cell lines.'

  • Judit Biro, who has a one-year-old son, starts work at the National Institute for Medical Research in London, UK in August 2003 after a year's break. The title of her work on stem cells is the 'Role of AA4/CD93 for hemato-lymphoid development and migration of progenitor/stem cells.'

  • Julie King, will be working on 'Genomic a
