Mid Term Report Meeting (June 4, 2014)



ANNOUNCEMENT

The GLYCOPHARM Mid-Term Review (MTR) meeting will be held on July 4th in Madrid, Spain and it will be host by the partner Universidad CEU San Pablo (USP-CEU). The main objective of this meeting is to assess the progress of the Initial Training Network (ITN) in delivering on the goals set at the begining of the project, on November 2012.

The Mid-Term Review should be understood as a constructive dialogue between the network participants and the Research Executive Agency project officer and is a valuable source of feedback to both the consortium and the Research Executive Agency (REA). For that reason, all recruited fellows as well as a representative of each partner are expected to gather for the MTR Meeting, including the Prof. Nishimura representing our associated partner in Japan, Hokkaido University.

Among other activities, all the recruited researchers (ESRs and ERs) will present a report offering an overview on their scientific and training progress within the GLYCOPHARM Network.

In addition, prior to the MTR meeting a welcome dinner will take place on July 3th.

GLYCOPHARM: an european Marie Curie project in our University (November 25, 2013)


 

ANNOUNCEMENT

The Fundación Universitaria San Pablo CEU repeated once again the seminar about GLYCOPHARM to acquaint its students with the Marie Curie Actions.

On November 25, 4 members of GLYCOPHARM provides a seminar about GLYCOPHARM in the faculty of pharmacy of the Funadación Univarsitaria San Pablo CEU. The event was organized by Dr. Sonsoles Martín-Santamaría, associate professor in the university and member of GLYCOPHARM.
Two seminars were imparted during the session, on the one hand, Dr Sonsoles Martín-Santamaría gave an interesting seminar with scientific contents titled "Computational Chemical Biology: Toll-like receptors and galectins as therapeutic targets".

The main focus of the second seminar was to give an overview to the Marie Curie Actions, in particular, to the Initial Training Networks (ITN).  The seminar titled "GLYCOPHARM: an ITN Marie Curie project in our University" were imparted by Dr. Dolores Solis, a senior researcher at the Centro Superior de Investigaciones Científicas and coordinator of the ITN GLYCOPHARM. In this seminar there was a special participation of two Early Stage Researchers who explained their experience in GLYCOPHARM, Ms. Alessandra Lacetera and Radoslaw Borowski.

     

 

 

Marie Curie Day @ UCD (November 21, 2013)
