Congratulations to Anne-Lise Routier and her 2 collegues who have just been awarded a prestigious grant from the Human Frontier Science Program (category Research Grants, Early Career). Their highly original project, titled Coupling movement and metabolism in plant stomatal cells: a multiscale and multiphysics approach, was granted 1 095 000 USD over three years. Anne-Lise appears to be the second University of Montreal professor to receive such a grant.
The news has made it into UdeM Nouvelles, read here (in French).
