TRIM-NET – Kick off Meeting

15 February, 2019

H2020 MSCA-ITN 2018 TRIM-NET - KICK-OFF MEETING 

The project “TRIM-NET: Training network in drug discovery targeting TRIM ubiquitin ligases in disease” funded by the European Union Horizon 2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network programme will
be officially launched on February 18, 2019 at the kick-off meeting that will take place at the Department of Life Sciences of the University of Trieste.

TRIM-NET is a 4-year-project funded with a total budget of 3,2 M€. It aims at addressing TRIM ubiquitin ligase activity and regulation to develop novel therapeutics for the treatment of different types of cancer, rare genetic neuromuscular disorders, and neurodegenerative diseases. 

The project is coordinated by Germana Meroni of the Department of Life Sciences, University of Trieste and includes 9 academic partners from the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France, Germany and Netherlands, plus 5 non-academic Partner Organisations. The TRIM-NET consortium is designed to bring together a multidisciplinary team, which connects different expertise (genetics, biochemistry, molecular and cell biology, chemical biology, structural biology) across Europe. Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN actions aim to promote training and international mobility for early stage researchers; the TRIM-NET consortium will recruit 12 young researchers in the different Nations involved in the project. 

The official call with the info on available positions and host institutions will be published by mid March 2019
