Arctic Chronobiology and Physiology awarded TWO Aurora mobility programme grants from the Research Council of Norway

Dr Anja Striberny and Dr Shona Wood have received funding from the Research Council of Norway to set up two different collaborations with France in 2019. These are the only two awards given to UiT, out of 15 awards nationally, both in Arctic Chronobiology and Physiology! We are very proud of our two young researcher’s success.

The award to Dr Shona Wood will be used to facilitate a new collaboration with Valerie Simonneaux, also funded by the Fonds Paul Mandel pour les recherches en neurosciences and the Tromsø Forskningsstiftelse. The project is based on neurobiology of seasonal timekeeping in mammals and will be primarily conducted by the ACP groups’ newest PhD student, Vebjørn Jacobsen Melum.

Dr Anja Striberny’s award will be used to support researcher exchange with Dr Elodie Magnanou. The aim of their project is to develop new approaches to improve the understanding of appetite control and growth in salmonids.
