During the last Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA)Conference (6-7 November 2020), it was announced that our project coordinator Daniele Catalucci and a Marie Curie Alumni, got the MCAA Best Innovator Award 2019. This category rewards former Marie Curie Alumni who presented the best innovation approach and Daniele was awarded for his “innovative and therapeutic approach for the treatment of failing heart, which could revolutionize the treatment of cardiac disease”. Indeed Daniele, after his Ph.D. in molecular and cellular biology from the University of Rome − Tor Vergata, received support by a Marie Curie Outgoing International Fellowship for his postdoctoral studies at the Department of Medicine, University of California San Diego, USA. After that experience, he came back to Italy and started his own group at the CNR. This recognition from the MCAA once again underlines the value of the innovation behind the CUPIDO project and the great role that Daniele had in initiating this project thanks to his out-of-the-box thinking!
