An ERC Consolidator Grant has been awarded to Joseph Moran, who is already the holder of an ERC Starting Grant, for the “MetabolismOrigins” project. It will enable the researcher from the Institut de Science et d’Ingénierie Supramoléculaires to continue his research into a new, metabolism-driven approach to prebiotic chemistry. The aim is to gain an in-depth understanding of how and why the biochemistry of life emerged, and to explain how it functions now, based on the fundamental principles of catalysis and organic chemistry.
