In the first COST-Aniridia STSM in October 2019, researchers in Saarland University Hospital, Aniridia-net.eu (Lorenz Latta) and Radboud University (Jo Huiqing Zhou) took the first steps to create a transcriptome blueprint of limbal epithelial cells in healthy as well as aniridic eyes, using aniridia samples from Saarland University Hospital and single cell RNA-seq technique, available at Dr. Zhou’s lab. These findings will provide insights into the understanding of limbal stem cell biology as well as into pathophysiologic changes of the disease. This collaboration was made possible thanks to COST actions networking tools ...
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).
