Newly elected ERA Chair in Translational Stem Cell Biology at the Medical University of Varna
Kick-off meeting with the Management board of the TranStem project will be held on October 17th 2019.
On 23.10.2019 a press conference was held on the launch of the project TranStem.
TranStem project is funded by the European Union under Grant Agreement number: 856871 — TRANSTEM — H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-2020/ H2020-WIDESPREAD-2018-04
The goal of TRANSTEM is to unlock, foster and sustain excellent basic and applied stem cell research as well as clinical application in MUV through the recruitment of an ERA Chair in stem cell biology. This goal will be strategically achieved by setting up a strong research group in the field, establishing a translational Department for Stem Cell Biology in MUV and placing MUV at the forefront of Research, Development and Innovation in stem cell and regenerative medicine research and therapies.
