WP4. LEVERAGING EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH ON STRATEGIC PHI MODELS

WP leader, Sadri Znaidi, IPT

The present WP aims at specifically leveraging IPT’s research excellence in strategic PHI models that have been described in detail in section 1.3.4.3 (i.e. leishmania, mycobacteria, pathogenic fungi, poliovirus and the microbiota in health and disease). Through twinning activities revolving around experts’ visits, networking and exposure to the vibrant scientific environment brought by our partnering institutions, this WP will lay the foundation for enhancing IPT’s capabilities in analyzing and translating strategic PHI Omics data, while instilling the innovation spirit and entrepreneurship/leadership skills among IPT’s young investigators. This WP will also lay the foundation for the implementation of highly attractive, competitive and sustainable collaborative research projects involving IPT and its partners
