New project funding - MARIE SKŁODOWSKA-CURIE ACTIONS (MSCA) Innovative Training Network (ITN) “SECRET” starts in October

The project “SECRET” has received funding of almost €4 million from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Framework Programme under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie grant agreement No 859962.

The four-year project will focus on exploring the SECRETory pathway regulation and its contribution to breast and colorectal cancer by providing a highly qualified platform for European research training of bright young scientists, with the aim of defining secretory pathway-linked candidate biomarker genes suitable for cancer diagnosis and prognosis. Fifteen new PhD students will be trained across the fields of cell biology, biochemistry, proteomics, molecular biology, organoid and animal models, systems biology, and computational modelling. The project is coordinated by Dr. Angelika Hausser.
