Dr. Gerard Boix Lemonche, a postdoctoral researcher from the University of Udine (Italy), recently returned from a scientific mission in the research group of Prof. Petrovski at the Center for Eye Research of the University of Oslo, Norway. The purpose of this fruitful mission was for him to gain hands-on technical experience in the production of bioengineered 3D corneal scaffolds, as well as in the isolation of corneal stromal and limbal epithelial stem cells from leftover donor corneas. This training provided Dr. Boix Lemonche with the expertise for developing of 3D corneal models and stablished the basis for future collaborations among both participating institutions. This scientific mission was made possible thanks to Aniridia-net CA18116 COST action networking tools. Representative...
ANIRIDIA-NET #CA18116 COST Action invites researchers to submit proposals for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM). A Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) is an exclusive COST tool offering the opportunity to conduct Action related activities at a participating host institution. All STSM specific aims and objectives must be aligned with the Action tasks as listed in the ANIRIDIA-NET Memorandum of Understanding. It is particularly useful for capacity building of Early Career Investigators (ECI) and those from Inclusiveness Target Countries (ITC).
STSM calls will be continuous for each grant period, and applications will be treated in a first come, first served basis, after checking the suitability of the applicant and their application.
Please check this space regularly for our open STSM Calls and the latest needs and requirements of our Action. Updates are also circulated through @AniridiaNet in Twitter and Linkedinn.
For more details, contact ANIRIDIA-NET STSM Manager: Prof Thomas RITTER (firstname.lastname@example.org).
