Partner 9: Fleming
Partner name: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre "Alexander Fleming"
Short name: Fleming
Country: Greece
Role: CR (contractor)

The B.S.R.C. "Alexander Fleming" is one of the leading biomedical research centres in Greece, as evidenced by two recent "Excellence" awards. The two PIs participating in this proposal have unique competences and an established international reputation in the following areas: (1) George Panayotou has twelve years experience in the analysis of macromolecular interactions, primarily involving biosensor technology (BIAcore) and more recently mass spectrometry; (2) Dimitris Thanos is one of the leaders in the field of epigenetic control of gene expression. The area of epigenetic mechanisms in which this group will contribute is identified by the call as an essential component of the proposal.
