Context / Contexte
With 18 million new cases and 9 million deaths per year worldwide, cancer is the 3rd cause of disease-related mortality. TRANSLACORE focuses on a major question in cancer biology, which is still unanswered clinically, but which offers promising prospects: understanding the role of protein synthesis in disease emergence and progression. Mastering protein synthesis is crucial, as it plays a decisive role in the adaptation and evolution of cancer cells. The project aims to encourage multidisciplinary research programs in Europe, providing innovative perspectives for cancer treatment.
Objectives / Objectifs
Translacore is organized into 5 working groups to achieve specific objectives based on sharing, creation and transfer of knowledge, career development through for exemple, training school, private-public programs for doctoral students, the organization of conferences and webinars, specific partnerships, job offers and partnership development for R&D collaboration.
Expected impact and results / Impact et résultats attendus
Translacore should help catalyse appropriate developments for European cooperation in science and technology and R&D partnerships especially in specific technologies: next-generation sequencing, translatomics, RNA mass spectrometry and structural biology. TRANSLACORE Europe will also be a major source of knowledge for the development of new mRNA-based therapies and the next generation of mRNA-based cancer vaccines.
LIP’s contribution / Rôle de LIP
