VIDI grant for Mark Peletier

The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) has awarded a VIDI grant to CWI researcher Mark Peletier for his mathematical research of the aggregation of molecules. Particular molecules form flat or stringlike structures, instead of shapeless lumps. Lipid molecules for example, aggregate in this way to form cell membranes. These structures are essential to the way living cells function.
