The recent identification of tumor initiating (TIC) or cancer stem cells (CSC) has opened a new area of research for scientists interested in cancer. Understanding the biology of cancer stem cells has already unraveled pathways and potential targets. However, accumulating data has underscored the complexity of the CSC research area and prompts hence the need for well-structured networks to provide expert platforms, rapid exchange of information to train future researchers in this new concept. 10 laboratories from 6 member states with 4 expert enterprises, all at the highest level of cancer stem cell research will unit in a European Cancer Stem Cell Training Network (EuroCSCTraining). Partners, from the public and private sector, have complementary expert experience in this new area, are active members of CSC research, and share dedication in training and dissemination. The EuroCSCTraining coordinator is one of the present coordinators of the Paris CSC Consortium and director of the Institute of PhD schools of University Paris-Diderot. The main goal of this Network is to foster translaboratory and transPhD school training in this new area of Cancer Research. The EurosCSCTraining supervisory board will bring together supervisors of the private and public sector along with representatives of PhD schools to provide eligibility criteria of recruitment, monitor training, and set up individual tutorship for PCD. The research projects on cancer stem cells will be advertised simultaneously through the EuroCSCTraining Network and the partners’ University. It is anticipated that the EuroCSCTraining network will create a multidisciplinary and multisector structure of training for a new area of research in cancer which will develop research in Europe, foster European collaborations and provide the basis to harmonise initial research training in cancer research amongst partner Institutions.
