Welcome to GLIOTRAIN
Exploiting GLIOblastoma intractability to address European research TRAINing needs in translational brain tumour research, cancer systems medicine and integrative multi-omics
A MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE ACTIONS (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN)
An estimated 240,000 cases of brain and nervous system tumours are diagnosed every year, worldwide and Glioblastoma (GBM) is the most frequent and aggressive brain tumour. New treatment options and effective precision medicine therapies are urgently required. GLIOTRAIN is a multi-sectoral industry-academia collaberation, funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN initiative, that will work to identify novel strategies to treat GBM as well as investigating resistance mechanisms in this devastating disease.
The first GLIOTRAIN training event will take place at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, Dublin from the 23rd to the 26th April 2018. It will be the first time all ESRs will meet together. There will be an interaction day with all PIs and ESRs to familiarise the students with the programme.
Prof Gabriele Bergers will present at two upcoming international conferences: firstly at the Cancer Research UK Brain Tumour Conference 2018 (in "The tumour microenvironment and the immune system" session and also at the "Brain Tumors Meeting 2018 - From Biology to Therapy" organised by the Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology and Foundation of Clinical and Experimental Oncology offering a talk entitled "Glioma heterogeneity in space and time".
