Training4CRM: European Training Network for Cell-based Regenerative Medicine

About the project

Training4CRM addresses gaps in Cell-based Regenerative Medicine (CRM) for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Parkinson´s (PD), Huntington´s (HD) Epilepsy (EPI)), which occur as a result of progressive loss of structure, function and/or death of neurons in the brain. These disorders have a high prevalence and are associated with short- and long-term impairments and disabilities with high emotional, financial and social burden to the patients, their families and friends.

The Training4CRM ETN program will offer training in transferable skills and inter-disciplinary research training in micro- and nanoengineering, biotechnology and pre-clinical research at the highest international level and quality, delivering 15 highly skilled and motivated young researchers, that will be attractive and immediately employable in both the academic and industrial sector due to their highly sought after cross-/interdisciplinary insights and expertise.

Objectives

The main objective of Training4CRM is to train a new generation of 15 young highly inter-disciplinary early stage researchers (ESRs), capable of mastering techniques and methods across the borders of their own disciplines, and to recognize ideas applicable to their own work. Moreover, through experience of learning with and from those of other professions, to have equipped them with unique leadership qualities and respect for others’ cultures, well prepared for work on teams and in settings where collaboration is key to success.
