networking institutions

TransPOT will work together with a number of partner Institutions to facilitate exchange of knowledge and expertise. This may involve trans-national two-way training between staff or advanced training of senior research personnel. TransPOT will organize 'think-tank' symposium on the future of translational research in Europe in which senior representatives from translational research-oriented European Institutions and coordinators of FP7 translational medical research will be invited. TransPOT will also pursue networking with other REGPOT-funded institutions which may wish to take advantage of the TransPOT facilities.

Genomics Lab
The award of the TransPOT grant has allowed us to acquire a state-of-the-art laser capture microdissection system and a robotic real-time PCR system for mid and high-throughput analyses. Trained personnel funded by TransPOT ensure the professional use of this equipment and aids users to optimize their experiments when using the facilities.
GMP Cell Therapy Unit
The GMP cell processing unit consists of four positive air-pressure modular clean-rooms covering a total surface of 35m2 inside the main building of the Medical School.
