Docent Vesa Hytönen granted Project Funding from Academy of Finland
PhD, Docent, Academy Research Fellow Vesa Hytönen has received Academy of Finland funding for his project “Adaptation of talin conformation to mechanical stress – Implications in mechanosignalling and cellular differentiation”. His project received 568 054€, and the project period is 1.9.2015–31.8.2019. The project aims to understand the mechanisms behind mechanosensing and cellular differentiation. Mechanical signals are essential for our health, but very little is known about the molecular mechanisms behind mechanosensing.
