Université de Strasbourg

2019 cohort of USIAS Fellows appointed

28 March 2019

USIAS is delighted to announce that 15 Fellows have been appointed within 12 Fellowship projects selected in 2019. For a duration of 3 to 24 months, Fellowships foster original, ambitious, high quality research across all disciplines. They are awarded to both excellent researchers from the University of Strasbourg and leading international scholars across the globe. In their research projects, the new Fellows will work to advance understanding on a wide range of topics, including innovative opto-nano-tweezers, the history of the book, mitochondrial dysfunction, digital archaeology, quantum systems, and new perspectives on neurodegenerative disease.
