Three research groups from the Inst. for Cancer Res. involved in projects receiving FUGE grants
The Board of FUGE (Functional Genomics in Norway) decided in a meeting in June to grant a total sum of NOK 118 mill to support research projects within the field of functional genomics. A large number of very good applications competed sharply about project support in this round. Of the 126 applications received within the closing date Dec 1st 2005, as many as 60 were in the "A" category, meaning "very good projects worthy of support". In the end, only 18 projects were selected. They run over a period of three years, and will receive between 5 and 11 mill. NOK each. Researchers from the Institute for Cancer research are involved in three of these projects.
