Prostate Research Organizations-Network of Early Stage Training (PRO-NEST)
The PRO-NEST consortium, September 2011
PRO-NEST is an FP7 Marie Curie Initial Training Network that offers training on all aspects of prostate cancer research, ranging from the molecular basis of this disease to the translation of biomarkers into the clinic, to 24 PhD students and starting post-docs. The ultimate scientific aim of PRO-NEST is to understand the molecular basis of prostate cancer to address prevention, and to provide novel biomarkers and therapeutic targets for monitoring and treatment of this major European health problem.
Through individual research projects, personal guidance, network-wide courses, secondments and conferences, fellows are educated and skilled for a future academic or industrial scientific position. The training programme is embedded in a consortium of 17 European host institutions from both academia and industry, offering expertise, 'state of the art' tools and technological skills that are competitive at the world scale and form the comprehensive basis of top-level research and training in PRO-NEST.
PRO-NEST has started on 1 October 2009 for a period of 4 years.
