Immune System of Vultures

08.05.2004

Navarre - The researcher at the Institute for Agrobiotechnology Natural Resources in Navarre, José Manuel Pérez de la Lastra, has been chosen by the Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas (CSIC) as candidate for the EURYI prize. The project presented by Pérez de la Lastra involves the study of the molecular base of the innate immune system of vultures.
EURYI (European Programme of Contracts for Young Investigators) is an initiative of EUROHORCS, the organisation that brings together the main research bodies of the EU, by which 25 promising young investigators are empowered to create their own research team in Europe. To this end, they will receive between Euro150,000 and Euro250,000 annually each. The EURYI prize has a total funding that lies between Euro750,000 and Euro1,250,000 over five years.
Apart from the interest in knowing more about the organic functioning of this protected species - even though the study is being carried out with genetic databanks and not with vultures - this research may have applications of great interest to human medicine. If it proves that the re-ceptors in the vultures are better than those of humans, their use can be patented to create biosensors and new molecules.
