We belong to a Marie Curie Initial Training Network funded under Framework Programme 7 of the European Commission.
The project, ‘CELLEUROPE’, pools the expertise of partners with both clinical and industrial expertise, all at the forefront of Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation research and representing a wide spectrum of disciplines and professions.
We, the researchers, will blog about our research, our journey through our PhD completion and our training experiences as we experience life as Marie Curie Fellows…
A little bit about the project:-
CELLEUROPE aims to develop a multi-disciplinary and inter-sectorial research training framework in Europe, aimed at improving current cellular therapies and testing novel cellular therapies. The project centres around Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT); the transplantation of multipotent hematopoietic stem cells and gaining insight into the life-threatening complications associated with the transplant procedure, such as inflammatory disease Graft versus Host Disease.
The project is currently training 9 Early Career Researchers and 3 Experienced Researchers from both European and international backgrounds. We will engage in on-the-job training, supplemented with structured workshops and network wide trainings in Transferable Skills and current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP), of value within both the industrial and academic job market.
