Congratulations to Philippe Froguel’s team from the CNRS lab ‘Integrative Genomics and Modelling of Metabolic Diseases’ in France.
We thank all the applicants and finalists for your submissions!
After one year on the road meeting scientists across Europe, PerkinElmer was more aware than ever of the challenges and aspirations of NGS laboratories. As a result, we launched the Upgrade my NGS grant to advance innovative use of NGS, and open a call for research projects to sponsor.
The project plans have been reviewed and the top applicants were selected by the advisors, comprised of PerkinElmer directors and NGS experts. During the Upgrade my NGS seminar, finalists had a chance to present their project proposals to the advisors in person, and the finalist with the most innovative and impactful research project was chosen.
Please note that the campaign was limited to specific countries.
