EuroCSCTraining’s major objective is to provide a practical training to 10 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and 3 Experienced Researchers (ERs) on Cancer Stem Cell Research.
The recent identification of tumor initiating (TIC) or cancer stem cells (CSC) has opened a new area of research for scientists interested in cancer. Understanding the biology of cancer stem cells has already unraveled pathways and potential targets. However accumulating data has underscored the complexity of the CSC research area and prompts hence the need for well-structured networks to provide expert platforms, rapid exchange of information to train future researchers in this new concept.
Partners involved in EuroCSCTraining, both from the public and private sectors, having a complementary expert experience in this new area, are active members of Cancer Stem Cell research and share dedication in training and dissemination.
