EUROPEAN UNION NETWORK for INVESTIGATION OF DENDRITIC CELL IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR INDUCTION of ANTI-VIRAL AND ANTI-TUMOR IMMUNITY AND TRANSPLANTATION tolerance

Objective



The proposed Research Network comprises ten Partners who will collaborate in the seven defined Tasks over three years (six periods) for training of long-term goal is to use DC for immunotherapy of human diseases. The eleven postdoctoral Researchers. Ten Researchers will work for three research objectives of this joint research project address the main issues periods with the principal host Partner, and for the remainder with up to that need to be resolved before this goal can be implemented at the three different Partners engaged in similar Tasks. The eleventh Researcher Community level. Seven, interrelated Tasks have been identified. Molecular and cellular techniques will be used to define, for murine and human DC: will be engaged in Network Tasks, working between Partners and liaising lineage and stage-specific genes and proteins (Task 1); conditions for with the Network Coordinator.
growth and purification of subsets with specific properties (Task 2); antigen receptors and processing compartments (Task 3); and costimulatory molecules for regulation of T cell activation (Task 4). This knowledge will then be applied in vivo, in both experimental and/or clinical settings, for induction of anti-viral immunity (Task 5), anti-tumor immunity (Task 6) and transplantation tolerance (Task 7).
