António Jacinto, Group Leader from the Tissue Morphogenesis and Repair Lab, was recently awarded a Proof of Concept from the European Research Council (ERC) for his work on regeneration of lesions of epithelial tissues, in collaboration with Thelial.

Two other Portuguese researchers, Edgar Gomes and Rui Costa, from Instituto de Medicina Molecular and Champalimaud Foundation respectively, also received this European grant.

"Proof of Concept" is a funding scheme open to researchers who have already been awarded an ERC grant. Proof of Concept aims to support ERC grantees magnify their research by funding work which was not scheduled to be funded by the original ERC research grant. The purpose is to explore the innovation potential of the research or help commercialisation of the results of the ERC-funded research.
