Congratulations to Dr Kayla King who was awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council. She will use the ~€1.5 million grant for her project 'COEVOPRO - Drivers and consequences of coevolution in protective symbiosis' to explore the evolutionary and ecological impacts of microbes that defend their hosts from parasitic infection.
"It is an honour to receive an ERC Starting Grant. It will give me the opportunity to work with brilliant colleagues and understand more about microbes that protect. The implications of these defences against infectious disease are numerous and exciting."
