Training scientists to treat osteoarthritis
There is no cure for osteoarthritis, a serious and painful degenerative joint disease. Once called the ‘wear and tear’ condition associated with ageing, osteoarthritis typically affects hands, knees, hips, lower back and neck. The EU-funded OSTASKILLS project will explore the development of treatment options to manage the symptoms. It will invite 10 talented researchers to apply for a doctoral training in the scientific methods within the field of regenerative medicine. The project’s overall aim is to nurture the next generation of entrepreneurial scientists capable of combining and translating major innovations in life sciences towards meaningful clinical applications and the healthcare market.
