Website for the Phd project: Deciphering PI3K biology in health and disease
In molecular biology, the PI3K family of enzymes is known for its role in controlling processes such as protein synthesis, cell growth and survival, and migration. However, its use as a potential therapeutic target is still in its early stages and more research is needed; indeed, these enzymes have implications in diseases such as inflammatory processes, neurodegeneration, diabetes and cancer.
As part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks, the PhD project: Deciphering PI3K biology in health and disease, in which UbiK acts as an associated partner, seeks to produce more knowledge on this family of molecules. Led from the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL), the project aims to train young people through doctoral programs to go deep in the functions of these molecules and advance in the development of drugs against diseases in which they are involved.
Our collaboration on the project has started with the implementation of a simple and practical website intended to address the objectives of dissemination. For us, it has been a pleasure working with the Phd-PI3K coordinating team, and stay in touch, because you will soon be receiving some news regarding other communication products on the same project.
