There is an update concerning the ClickGene Webinar, that will take place on the 20th January 2016. The Webinar will be organised by ACCEL and will be led by Dr. Andrew Kellett and Dr. Jeanette Müller both of whom will also welcome the participants to the Webinar an deliver a short introduction.
The Webinar will give the participants an overview of WP1 (by Prof. Thomas Carell), WP2 (by Prof. Chrys Chatgilialoglu), WP3 (Prof. Carla Ferreri) and WP4 (by Dr. Niall Barron) and will dive into the individual projects in more detail. The ESRs will describe their individual projects persoanlly.
The 1st Network Meeting of ClickGene was held in conjunction with an inter-working group meeting of the COST Action CM1201: Biomimetic Radical Chemistry. The COST meeting was held at Carton House Resort, Kildare, Ireland between 23rd - 25th July (2015) and provided an excellent oppertunity for ClickGene PI's and ESRs to interact and present their work to a larger EU scientific community. The COST meeting featured a range of ClickGene speakers (Dr. Carla Fererri of CNR, Bolonga is pictured) along with internationally renowned experts in the field of radical chemistry. The joint meeting proved to be very successful with a range of open exchanges between advanced and young researchers alike. A further meeting between COST CM1201 and ClickGene is planned for April 2016 and will be held in Grenoble, France.
The 1st Nework Meeting of ClickGene took place on July 21st (2015) at Dublin City University, Ireland and was hosted by Dr. Andrew Kellett and Dr. Niall Barron. The ITN meeting was attended by academic and industry partners (Dr. Antonio Manetto of baseclick GmbH is pictured) along with recruited ESRs. The meeting featured a series of introductions, scientific talks, and collaborative plans. The event was hosted at the National Institute for Cellular Biotechnology (NICB) located on the DCU campus where both Dr Barron and Dr Kellett's research groups' are based.
The majority of academic partners are management committee members of the COST Action CM1201: Biomimetic Radical Chemistry and are involved in the “Models of DNA Damage and Consequences” and the "Bio-Inspired Synthetic Strategies" working groups. The ClickGene consortium will participate in the COST Action Chemistry Inter Working Group Meeting in Kildare, Ireland from 23-25th July 2015.
The Kick-off meeting took place in Munich on the 21th of January and aimed at gathering the different partners involved in the project.
The meeting has started with a talk from accelopment AG presenting the admistrative aspects of the project as well as an overview of the agenda planned over the 48 months duration of the project. Sciencitific talks followed then with speakers from both the academic partners (Dublin City University (IE), Ludwig Maximilian University Munich (DE), Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry ASCR (CZ)) and the industry partners (baseclick GmbH (DE), (LipiNutraGen srl (IT)).
The ClickGene Project started at 1st January 2015. The project wil be coordinated by Dr Andrew Kellet of the Dublin City University.
The project will provide training for 14 PhD students in the next 4 years.
