Functional analysis of miRNAs during early development


Four research teams of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBB) will provide training for early stage researchers in the format of a 'mono-site'. We will provide open access to eligible fellows, who will be selected based on their motivation and potential of excellence. We offer to integrate the foreign fellows into our existing tutorial program for local graduate students, thus strengthening our ongoing educational activities and we will provide for each fellow an individual research program for studying developmental processes in model organisms with a special focus on the elucidation of the regulatory role of small non-coding RNAs, including micro RNAs (miRNAs). We will establish expression profiles of various miRNAs and we will identify and validate target mRNAs that are under miRNA control. During their stay at the IMBB, the fellows will be considered members of our research teams with full access to the facilities and infrastructure of our institute. The training scheme will aim to develop scientific competence of the visiting fellows and will provide them with specific technological, theoretical and complementary skills that will be useful for their professional future, encouraging them to pursue own research careers. We hope to establish and reinforce via this training program long-term links to other European teams.
