Scientific Top Training in Antimicrobial Research

Objective

The Amsterdam Institute for Molecules, Medicines and Systems (AIMMS, www.aimms.vu.nl) offers an innovative selection
procedure for international Top Master's Students to train a new generation of top scientists who can contribute to solving
the problem of bacterial, viral and parasitic diseases.
A multitude of microbes, and their resistance in particular, threaten the health of European citizens and the community
worldwide. For 'attacking' the bugs involved, we need new multidisciplinary approaches and strategies, including
translational thinking all the way from molecule to man. This requires the training of a new breed of excellent young
scientists, familiar with the whole scope of drug discovery and development, ADME and safety, systems biology,
microbiology and molecular biology.

The current Dutch NWO AIMMS STAR programme educates these future experts, combining at least two of these fields and
the translational context. This enables implementation of state of the art techniques into new strategies and approaches to
beat antimicrobial threats, such as the recent Ebola epidemic.

With the aid of the proposed MSCA-COFUND, the AIMMS STAR programme can be extended internationally with four additional PhD positions resulting in an established international AIMMS STAR PLUS programme, with a dedicated, open
selection procedure for top-talented MSc- / PhD-students from across Europe.
