Training / Education

Short Term Scientific Missions (STSMs) and training workshops will be organised in the framework of GENIEUR to train early stage scientists in basic as well as clinical science with specific skills in the field of IBS.

Training schools


It is our pleasure to announce the second COST Action BM1106 GENIEUR (Genes in Irritable Bowel Syndrome Research Network Europe, www.GENIEUR.eu) Training School entitled “Molecular Methods in IBS Research: genetics, epigenetics and microbiota research” in conjunction with the GENIEUR Final Conference. The Training School will take place from March 11 to 13, 2016, at the “ZMBH” - Zentrum für Molekulare Biologie at the University of Heidelberg, Im Neuenheimer Feld 282, D-69120 Heidelberg, Germany.

This year, the Working Groups 3 and 4 (Genetics / Epigenetics and Microbiota) of the COST Action BM1106 GENIEUR have organised this Training School in collaboration with the Initial Training Network NeuroGut (www.neurogut.eu).

One of the major goals of GENIEUR is to encourage young colleagues to get engaged in translational neurogastroenterology research. With this Training School we will offer a platform for the young scientists as well as the more established colleagues from all Working Groups involved in the Action to get introduced to the background knowledge about the state of the art in experimental methods and analysis techniques in genetics/epigenetics and microbiota research. Please find more information within the enclosed programme.

We would like to encourage you to motivate your fellows to apply by e-mail to the COST Action GENIEUR office in Heidelberg via this . Applicants are asked to send a motivation letter, CV and publication record until January 23, 2016.

Selection of candidates will be made by the COST Action BM1106 GENIEUR Steering Committee until February 6, 2016.

The COST Action BM1106 GENIEUR will award Training School Grants to selected Trainees. Grant Letters, mentioning the fixed amount of the Training School Grants, will be sent out at mid February, 2016.

In case of any questions please do not hesitate to contact the COST Action BM1106 GENIEUR office.
