Training network providing cutting-EDGE knowlEDGE on Herpes Virology and Immunology
EDGE (Training network providing cutting-EDGE knowlEDGE on Herpes Virology and Immunology) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network for early stage researchers (ESRs) funded by the European Commission under the H2020 Programme, the EU framework programme for research and innovation. EDGE will provide a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary structured curriculum for doctoral students in the fields of virology and immunology.
Key research aims of EDGE are to improve the basic understanding of the interactions between herpesviruses and host cells and to uncover implications for the clinical outcome of infections as well as development of vaccines.
While each ESR will be based in a host institution, there will be extensive interactions between laboratories involved, and all positions involve secondments in other laboratories of the network, which also includes a theoretical training program.
