Training (2015-2019)

Oncornet is set up to provide young researchers (ESRs) with dedicated training. The ESRs will be trained as a cohort in all (mandatory) network-wide ONCORNET workshops with the aim of educating and training the next generation of GPCR/drug researchers who will have a multidisciplinary and intersectoral skill set. The workshops (W1-W7) share the same programme structure:

day 1: progress meeting – exchange of latest results, updates (together with supervisors and PIs)
day 2-3: training on scientific topics, including practical courses;
day 4-5: training on transferable skills

The schedule and details about the organizing entities are given below.

Workshop 1 – hosted by VUA in Amsterdam (5 days)
Workshop 2 – hosted by UGL in Glasgow (4 days)
Workshop 3 – hosted by arGEN-X in Gent (4 days)
Workshop 4 – hosted by CNRS in Montpellier (5 days)
Workshop 5 – hosted by UWUE and MPG in Würzburg and Bad Nauheim (5 days)
Workshop 6 – hosted by UNOTT in Nottingham (5 days)
Workshop 7 – hosted by VUA in Amsterdam (5 days)

The transatlantic ECI GPCR symposium #ECIGPCR is about to start, we are ready!! Thanks to the organizers for their excellent job gathering almost 500 people across the globe! @cyclic_Andreas @NicoleAPerry1 @BenderSci @DesislavaNeshe1

My project will be focused on the role of #CXCR4/ACKR3/GRK2 -governed networks in cancer cell migration and metastasis.

Hello 🙂
I am here to continue the series in which all #ESRs are presenting themselves. I am Viviana Marolda and I am in my first year of PhD. I am #ESR13, originally from Italy, and currently, I am working as a PhD student in @CBMSO_CSIC_UAM, at Universidad Autonoma de Madrid.

Hey twitter!
I am @DehanComez. I am taking over the Oncornet account for a while to start a series of all #ESRs writing about themselves and their projects. I am #ESR5, originally from Turkey and right now I am working as a PhD student in @COMPARE_UoBUoN , @UniofNottingham , UK.

New review on #gpcr structural dynamics out in COSB. Great teamwork with the @JanaSelent group. Thanks to @Lundbeckfonden and @novonordiskfond https://lnkd.in/eyjrA5V

ONCORNET2.0 is the successor to #ONCORNET. You can see some of the work of ESRs from the first ONCORNET in this special issue of @MolPharmJournal from 2019, with reviews on #CXCR4 and #ACKR3 structure and function: https://molpharm.aspetjournals.org/content/96/6

Hi everyone – we’re on Twitter! ONCORNET2.0 is a #MarieCurie ITN of 16 ESRs across Europe studying #chemokine #GPCRs #CXCR4 and #ACKR3 in cancer. Our projects cover molecular dynamics, medchem, #pharmacology through to translational work. Follow us for updates from our ESRs!

Hi everyone!

Public service announcement: our Marie-Curie ITN @ONCORNET1 is on Twitter! The 16 wonderful #ECRs working on the project will soon be Tweeting about #GPCR #chemokine #ECR life and #pharmacology

Please #RT & consider a follow or follow back! 🙏😀
