° 2nd CellFit Training School°
This year the Mountain University – UNIMONT, a center of excellence of the University of Milan, based in Edolo, will host the International Training School organized by CellFit entitled “Add a new dimension to cell culture” with the participation of researchers from all over Europe. UNIMONT, increasingly at the center of international dynamics and trajectories which animate the world of research and innovation, has been able to transform decentralization into opportunity, offering a well-equipped environment and on-site support to an important initiative for research and innovation.
The second Training School organized by CellFit “Add a new dimension to cell culture” A practical full immersion course on 3D matrix will be held at UNIMONT- Mountain University and in Ponte di Legno from 10th to 14th February 2019. During the four days of the course selected researchers will be able to participate in theory lessons and practical workshops held by European teachers, experts in designing and printing 3D platforms to learn and apply cutting-edge techniques.
CellFit is a European network of excellence (COST Action CA16119) led by the University of Milan, with expertise at all levels in biology, bioengineering and clinical research. The project consists in a network of 34 European countries – involving universities, research centers and small and medium-sized enterprises – committed to creating models of culture on 3D matrices and generating organoids for the development of new cell therapy technologies and innovative applications in regenerative medicine and tissue biology.
Chair of the Action is Tiziana Brevini, professor of Veterinary Anatomy and Embryology of Milan University and project proposer. CellFit has been selected from over a thousand proposals from all over Europe, as a new COST Action, European Cooperation in Science and Technology for the four-year period 2017-2021 and will be implementing cooperation, scientific research and technological innovation.
