WHAT IS INTERCEPT-MDS?
INTERCEPT-MDS is an Innovative Training Network funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
Born from the LifeTime Initiative, the aim of INTERCEPT-MDS is to train Europe’s first experts at the doctorate level in the novel field of disease interception: treating a disease before it fully develops by removing altered cells.
INTERCEPT-MDS brings together 10 European public and private institutions in a European network of experts in leukaemia, epigenetics and single-cell genomics.
Through a multidisciplinary and multisectoral approach, INTERCEPT-MDS will study disease interception in the context of clonal myeloid diseases, using single-cell genomic methods to identify altered cells and test epigenetic perturbations to specifically remove them.
In September we feature our ninth ESR of the month: Priyansh Srivastava!
Priyansh works under the supervision of Ana Conesa at BioBam Bioinformatics (Valencia). There ,he is developing bioinformatics solutions for the functional analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq).
