Neuroinflammation is a hallmark of multiple sclerosis and ischemic stroke. Investigating neuroinflammation as a common theme in neurological disorders, this ITN will focus in particular on myeloid cells, microglia, and endothelial cells. Sixteen partners from the academic and private sector with complementary scientific background join forces to train 13 ESRs in neuroinflammatory concepts and technologies that are valid across specific disease entities. Using an interdisciplinary and intersectorial approach the training will promote technical expertise, insight into entrepreneurship, as well as leadership and communication skills and lay the foundation for a successful career of ESRs either in the academic or private sector.
