NEW YORK, June 7 (GenomeWeb News) - The European Union has awarded Tripos a Marie Curie Fellowship for Transfer of Knowledge worth approximately 875,000 ($1.1 million) to pay for seven biology and chemistry researchers to join the company, Tripos said today.

 

The fellowship is being awarded under the EU's Sixth Framework Program, and is to be used to pay for seven researchers to join Tripos Discovery in Bude, UK, for 18 months each over a four-year period, Tripos said.
