REcreating the ideal Niche: environmental control Of cell Identity in Regenerating and diseased muscles

Project description

Environmental control of cell identity to combat muscle disease and ageing

The EU-funded RENOIR project comprises a European training network bringing together 10 academic and three industrial partners in a bid to train 13 early stage researchers with an exceptional profile and background to become leaders in the field of muscle regeneration and ageing. This new generation of versatile researchers will dissect the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying impaired muscle composition and function, paving the way for new therapeutic interventions for muscle disease and ageing. The work is designed to be carried out through collaborative and synergistic projects between academia and industry.

Objective

RENOIR is a European Training Network that brings together 12 beneficiaries (10 academic and 2 industrial), and 3 partner organizations (a private Onlus Foundation, a pharmaceutical company, and a university) to train 13 Early Stage Researchers with an interdisciplinary profile for outstanding carriers as leaders in the field of muscle regeneration and aging.
Receiving a training programme in both scientific and transferable skills and using unique expertise and tools at the frontier between biology and engineering, this new generation of versatile researchers will dissect the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying impaired muscle composition and function, paving the way to new therapeutic interventions for muscle disease and aging. This will happen through collaborative and synergistic projects between academia and industry.
