Objective

This ITN is built around the biological question of O-glycosylation in gastric cancer for training in systems glycobiology. For meeting the needs of the research goal and for training for future systems glycobiology operations, cross disciplinary international institutes have been identified with top level state-of-the-art glycobioanalytical, glycotechnological and glycobioinformatics platforms. These platforms will be utilized and adopted to address the biology. The researchers will be exposed to academia and industry working together to develop resources of common use for addressing complex biological questions. This has been shown in the area of proteomics, to be a successful way for developing bioinformatics, databases, software, bioanalysis, reagents and biomolecule synthesis/production. These resources are now in use throughout the life science environment in academia, biotech and biopharma. However, there is no individual institute to our knowledge that can prepare new systems glycobiologists for the full impact of the environment they will operate in. This ITN is addressing this deficiency in training, in order to contribute to make Europe a competitive environment for the new generation of multidisciplinary research for complex glycobiological questions. The training to address the systems glycobiology in gastric cancer will provide the researchers with biological and technological workshops and courses in project management and business operations together with bidirectional secondments between academia-industry. Two dedicated training partners have been identified in order to provide efficient on-site training and self studies promoted by E-learning. In the research process we will identify and transfer technologies and biological outcomes for commercialization. A significant part of the training will also be to provide researchers with techniques peripheral to the ones available on their home base.
