A training network in drug discovery targeting TRIM ubiquitin ligases is recruiting 12 PhD students

The Tripartite motif (TRIM) family of Ubiquitin E3 ligases plays an important role in many physiological processes and in many diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative and neuro-muscular disorders and rare genetic diseases. As such, they are excellent targets for therapeutic manipulation. TRIM-NET is a training programme for Early-Stage Researchers to identify novel therapeutic targets and to develop the strategies to validate them in preclinical studies.

Applications before April 30th for a final selection on May 9th and 10th.

Application in a single pdf file should be sent by e-mail to with indication of “TRIM-NET application” in the subject line. Equal consideration will be given to female and male applicants.
