WHAT IS IMMERGE?
IMMERGE: STORMING IMMUNE MONOGENIC CONDITIONS THROUGH MULTIOMIC AND GENE EDITING APPROACHES
IMMERGE is a Doctoral Network funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of the European Union’s Horizon Europe research and innovation Programme.
IMMERGE is a unique educational program at PhD level that takes a multidisciplinary approach, designed to provide specialized training to 12 Doctoral Candidates (DC) in the area of immunology, with a focus on Inborn Errors of Immunity (IEI), which will be supervised by international experts in the field.
IMMERGE is a collaborative initiative that unites leading experts from 10 European and International public and private institutions in the fields of immunology, genetics, epigenetics, proteomics, single cell omics, bioinformatics, and gene correction.
IMMERGE investigates how IEI impact on immune cell functions, using single cell analysis, multiomics and computational tools to understand modified cellular pathways. Our goal is to understand, model and correct IEIs through genetic interventions and pre-clinical models.
SCIENTIFIC EXCELLENCE AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
The IMMERGE network’s well-balanced composition will provide all the necessary know-how and resources to underpin the scientific distinction of our Doctoral Candidates (DCs).
Academic and industry specialists, coming from two different research environments (basic and clinical) across Europe and other international institutions, will provide a unique opportunity for multidisciplinary and multisectoral education in the realm of immunology.
Our Doctoral Candidates (DCs) will be registered in a PhD program and will participate in a well-organized training initiative comprising of courses for developing scientific and complementary skills, specialized workshops, conferences, retreats, and opportunities for networking.
Moreover, our DCs will undertake temporary placements at other institutions within the network, to facilitate the essential collaborations for achieving research and training of excellence and enhancing their career perspectives in both academia and the private sector.
