Research into DNA folding awarded €2 million grant


Researcher Elzo de Wit has been awarded a €2 million grant by the European Research Council to spend the next five years researching DNA folding in cells. This folding is crucial to the healthy functioning of cells and therefore the whole body.

To be healthy the human body needs well-functioning cells. To function well, those cells need to get the right instructions, which are written in our genes, in our DNA. For instance, certain genes will tell a cell to become a brain cell, while others instruct it to become a skin cell.
