JutarnjiLife, among other media from Croatia and Bosnia Herzegovina, has dedicated a space to Fran Supek, on the occasion of his receiving a Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC). 

With this award, the ERC allows high-level scientists such as Supek to work long-term, “leading to important discoveries”.  In this case, the research will focus on the genomes of hypermutated tumours.
