13 MSCA-funded PhD positions on the NANOREMEDI-programme in 'Functional Nano-Scaffolds for Regenerative Medicine'


13 ESR PhD positions will become available on the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Doctoral Network NANOREMEDI-programme in 'Functional Nano-Scaffolds for Regenerative Medicine'.

NANOREMEDI stems from six Doctoral Courses/Schools at six beneficiary institutions, providing research and training in the field of nanomaterials for Regenerative Medicine. An active contribution of enterprises in training activities is a relevant feature of the programme.

Beneficiaries (Doctorate Courses/Schools):

  • University of Milan (Pharmaceutical Sciences), ITALY – Coordinating University;

  • Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Polymers and Biopolymers) SPAIN;

  • The Hebrew University Jerusalem (School of Chemistry), ISRAEL;

  • Université de Montpellier (Balard Chemical Sciences doctoral school), FRANCE;

  • University of Pavia (Bioengineering, Bioinformatics & Health Technologies), ITALY;

  • IC nanoGUNE (Materials Physics; delivered by University of the Basque Country - Associated Partner linked to NANOGUNE beneficiary), SPAIN.

Associated partners for secondments activities:

  • Bayer Health Care Pharmaceuticals – ITALY;

  • Edelweiss Connect GMBH – SWITZERLAND;

  • Italfarmaco S.p.A. (CHEMI) – ITALY;

  • Jacobacci & Partners – ITALY;

  • Lynxter -FRANCE;

  • Simune Atomistics SL – SPAIN;

  • Ponti & Partners, SLP – SPAIN;

  • AbMedica – ITALY;

  • DeLama – ITALY;

  • Officine Innovazione Srl (Deloitte) –

  • ITALY; Genepep – FRANCE; BioBasic Europe rsl - ITALY

 

The scientific approach proposed by NanoReMedi Consortium is strongly multidisciplinary and will involve a number of different state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies. Expected results are:

  • Generate tissue engineered vascular grafts (VGs) to replace damaged peripheral arteries
  • Study stem-cell based regenerative medicine for bone and cartilage repair
  • Ftakle implantation failure of engeneered tissues/scaffolds

13 ESR PhD positions are offered by the Consortium related to different and multidisciplinary projects strongly interconnected involving different state-of-the-art technologies and methodologies:

- Computational chemistry;

- Chemical synthesis/peptide synthesis;

- Peptide based Nanomaterials (Soft materials/Hydrogels/Electrospinning) preparation and spectroscopic characterization;

- Production of vein graph;

- 3D-tissue fabrication;

- Biofilm prevention;

- Electrostimulated release of antimicrobial peptides

Each ESR will attend the following training activities: i) advanced courses and soft and transferable skill courses provided by University’s doctorate courses/schools; ii) multidisciplinary courses/Summer delivered by NanoReMedi Network at the general Network Meetings/; iii) Nine-months secondment at one of the Beneficiary jointly awarding the doctoral degree to improve research methods complementary to those at home institution; iv) Three-months secondment at one of the enterprise where ESRs are expected to acquire complementary skills.
