Silvia Vignolini and Tuomas Knowles have won ERC Consolidator Grants to work on the interaction between light and organisms and how proteins come together to form functional liquid organelles.

European Research Council Consolidator Grants are aimed at researchers with 7 - 12 years of experience after obtaining their PhD.

More than 300 grants were awarded to mid-career researchers across the EU, including five Cambridge researchers. Two of those, Silvia Vignolini and Tuomas Knowels from the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry, are CamBridgeSens members.

There research activities are truely cross-disciplinary as they lie at the interface between chemistry, biology and physics. Silvia Vignolini's research focuses on the interation of light with living organism, while Tuomas Knowles works on how proteins form into functional cell organelles.
