Job description
MSCA ITN founded project "DohART-NET” focusing on key aspects of altered conditions during the periconceptional (PC) period of gamete maturation. The DohART-NET project focus on the integration of pre-clinical (animal and stem cell-models) and clinical studies and apply data linkage, bioinformatics and network science for the identification and validation of mechanisms of diseases common in early development. Project will exploit a new understanding to promote efficient disease prevention and potential personalised therapeutic interventions in both the general and ART populations to overcome adverse disease pathways. DohART-NET is optimized for training Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) due to the facts that: i) the topic is progressive and much needed to improve public health over several generations, and it is integrating basic pre-clinical, translational clinical and in silico modeling approaches, iii) the partnership has a highly multi- and interdisciplinary scientific and training expertise and excellence, iv) there is an existing synergy by collaborations and links that the partners wish to strengthen both in science and lasting training programs in a highly inter-sectorial setting. ESRs will strongly benefit from a network of internationally recognized scientists in the field of basic and clinical science (translational research), involving departments like Genetics, Bioinformatics, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and the participation of companies with relevant interests and expertise in the field.
