MemTrain EU-Cofund Award

CALIXAR is proud to announce the grant of the EU Marie Sklodowska-Curie funded COFUND Doctoral Programme entitled MemTrain (Cell Membranes in Industrial Processes Training).

The Programme, coordinated by Dr Alan Goddard from the Aston Membrane Protein and Lipid Research Group (AMPL), will enable the training of 12 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs; within 4 years of Master’s qualification) over 5 years, with the opportunity to complete a PhD in an area of research within the remit of AMPL, each of which is expected to have an intersectoral focus.

This is the opportunity for CALIXAR to strengthen its successful long-term collaboration with Aston University, especially with Dr. Alice Rothnie and Prof. Roslyn Bill’s laboratories.

The selected PhD students will have the chance to evolve at the interface between academia and industry and contribute to the development of membrane protein innovation.
