Scientific Networks

IGMM groups and their staff members are involved in numerous national and international scientific networks, in keeping with the international activity developed in the institute, as testified by the presence of citizens from 28 different countries. In particular, one can cite:

International Networks

- The "ADVance" ITN (International Training Network from the European Marie Curie-Sklodowska program) aiming at training young researchers in the field of adenovirus biology towards applications in vaccine development and gene therapies ( (Team : Kremer).
- The "UPSstream" ITN ( aiming at training young investigators in the ubiquitin/proteasome and ubiquitin-likes field. (Team: Piechaczyk).
- The "Ingenium" ITN ( aiming at training young investigators in the epigenetics and human diseases field. (Team: Feil).
- The "RPN net" ITN ( aiming at training young investigators in the field of RNA biology. (Teams: Bertrand and Tazi).
- The "ATTRACT" ITN ( aiming at training young investigators in the field of adoptive cellular immunotherapies. (Team: Taylor).
- The European "BrainVectors" FP7 network ( aiming at treating Parkinson disease via delivery of GDNF in central nervous system owing to adenoviral vectors. (Team: Kremer).
- The European European "BrainCAV" FP7 consortium ( aiming at developing novel adenoviral vectors towards better understanding and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases. (Team: Kremer).
- The European "Proteostasis" BM1307 COST network ( dealing with the ubiquitin/proteasome system, ubiquitin-like molecules, autophagy and lysosomal degradation in physiology and pathology. (Teams: Piechaczyk and Desagher).
