TRANSTEM: ERA Chair in Translational Stem Cell Biology

Descripción del proyecto

Un innovador centro de investigación de células madre en Bulgaria

La investigación sobre células madre está avanzando en Bulgaria con la incorporación de una cátedra del Espacio Europeo de Investigación (EEI) en la Universidad Médica de Varna. El objetivo es promover y apoyar la investigación básica y aplicada, con el fin de ampliar el estudio de la base de conocimientos existente sobre temas específicos. El proyecto TRANSTEM, financiado con fondos europeos, creará un avanzado Departamento de Biología de Células Madre para la cátedra del EEI, que será un científico con experiencia en biología. El departamento aprovechará al máximo las capacidades científicas existentes, ampliará la eficiencia en la creación y el uso de innovaciones, y fortalecerá el descubrimiento de nuevos tratamientos y medicamentos por parte de la universidad. El resultado de la investigación beneficiará a la salud pública y creará nuevas oportunidades financieras.

Objetivo

The goal of TRANSTEM is to unlock, foster and sustain excellent basic and applied stem cell research as well as clinical
application in MUV through the recruitment of an ERA Chair in stem cell biology.
TRANSTEM will specifically:
- Enhance research organization and management in MUV by establishing a new and fully functional Stem Cell Biology
Department and hiring an outstanding stem cell biology researcher and manager who will guide the transformation process
and SCBD development.
- Strengthen the scientific excellence in MUV in the field of translational stem cell biology via continuous development and
regular evaluation of the new Stem Cell Biology Department, human resource capacity upgrade, trainings in research,
bilateral exchanges with foreign research centres of excellence in stem cell biology, and study visits in bio banks abroad.
- Increase the transfer of innovation potential of MUV and enable the translation of discoveries into new therapies and
medical products which improve public’s health and generate new economic opportunities through the setting up of a
knowledge transfer office, upgrading IPR strategy
- and fostering project and collaborations with biotech, healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
- Enable regional socio-political development in the field of stem cell biology by generating regional support through open
multi-stakeholder dialogue with social and political stakeholders, tackling policy bottlenecks and roadmapping reforms in the
Bulgarian research and innovation landscape.
- Leverage existing and establish new collaborations to extend application and participation both in national operational
programmes and international EU funded calls thus enabling major scientific advancements in the use of stem cells for
public health.
- Ensure widespread and effective communication and dissemination which raise awareness, foster interactions and
maximise TRANSTEM’s impact at the regional, national and international levels.
