Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology with the Horizon Europe grant!
Prof. Bozena Kaminska and Dr Katarzyna Leszczynska from Laboratory of Molecular Neurobiology will coordinate the HORIZON-MISS-2023-CANCER-01 grant: HIT-GLIO - Targeting tumour-host interactions in paediatric malignant gliomas to reinvigorate immunity and improve radio- and immunotherapy efficacy. The international and multidisciplinary consortium, composed of 10 partners from: Poland, France, Germany Netherland, UK, Italy and Canada, receives 11,14 mln Euro to find new ways of treating paediatric high-grade gliomas, malignant, deadly tumours developing in infants and children. The researchers using state-of-the art technologies and novel animal models will dissect tumour-host interactions to reveal novel targets allowing to find new ways to eradicate mutated tumour cells, improve efficacy of radiotherapy, and reinvigorate anti-tumour immunity. Neurodevelopmental alterations and psychological consequences of disease will be assessed and foster psychological approaches developed to increase quality-of-life of patients and caregivers. The expected outcomes of HIT-GLIO would ultimately pave the way for new clinical trials to improve the way these deadly tumours are treated.
Dr. Mitrajit Ghosh - Laureate of the 2023 Molecular Oncology Writing Competition!
