FP6 Marie Curie Research Training Network projekt "Glycogold: Exploration of the nature and potential of Glyco-nano-particles", koordinator J.F.G. Vliegenthart, Utrecht
Šifra projekta: MRTN-CT-2004-005645
Vrsta projekta: Ostalo

Opis projekta
The aim of the RTN is to explore the potential of gold Glyco-Nano-Particles (GNPs), to deepen the understanding of biomolecular interactions and to solve biomedical problems. The innovative combination of a variable metallic core with a selected set of ligands can turn GNPs into vaccines or anti-adhesion agents or dedicated vehicles to deliver compounds safely at their target location. GlycoGold will operate as a virtual research training centre at the interface of physics, chemistry, immunology, molecular biology, and bioinformatics. It integrates and expands the knowledge base and infrastructures of the partners. It has work packages (WPs) that deal with materials, tools and insight into biomolecular interactions, and WPs geared towards the application of GNPs as vaccines, and control of interactions. The Training&Mobility and Design&Innovation WPs and active networking ensure a smooth project workflow. The tasks are assigned to international task forces. The research is timely, because the required techniques have evolved to a point that an integrated multinational approach is viable. Secondly, interest of industries in obtaining this information is high. Thirdly, the necessary overall knowledge to perform the research in a single laboratory does not exist in Europe, and very few graduates have the integrated knowledge to operate in this area, despite the large demand for them. The network provides an interdisciplinary training environment for these specialists, where training is offered through (i) hands-on experience, (ii) summer schools aimed to bridge the knowledge gap between the physical and life sciences, (iii) short courses, lectures, demonstrations and practical training sessions, and (iv) activities for individual career development. Dedicated international and multilingual science promoting activities are scheduled annually aimed at young science students and in particular at high-school pupils.
