Reinforcing IPT capacities in Genomic Medicine, Non Communicable Diseases Investigation and international cooperation (GM_NCD_IN_CO)
Date du début: 1 déc. 2011, Date de fin: 30 nov. 2014 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

The aim of the proposal is reinforcing IPT capacities (i) in genomic medicine, withapplications in Non Communicable Diseases (NCD) investigation, and (ii) in International Cooperation activities. This project will facilitate joint research and innovation related activities between European and Tunisian researchers in the field of NCD.To achieve these aims the following actions are proposed: Setting and implementing trainingmodules, two trainings on international project setting in the frame of European FrameworkProgram, four advanced courses and theoretical and practical workshops in various aspects ofstructural and functional genomics, with a particular emphasis on NCD investigation will beorganized. Exchange of visits between IPT, IP Paris and other EU laboratories working on relevantfield are also planned to improve networking capacities. Two pilot projects will be performed. The aim of the pilot projects is to learn how to design and implement genetic diversity and health projects in post genomics. The pilot projects will also help stimulate EU-Tunisia cooperation, and develop competencies in genomic medicine.GM‐NCDin‐Co targets Institut Pasteur de Tunis, an independent governmental institution, under the tutorship of the Tunisian Ministry of Health. This more than centenary institution is considered as a national and regional centre of excellence in particular in the field of infectious diseases. To answer to the new challenges of the epidemiological transition and with the increase of prevalence of NCDs,IPT has developed new activities related to the investigation of the genetic basis of monogenic andmultifactorial diseases. Reinforcing these promising activities has a great potential to benefit EUresearch institutions through new international cooperation activities.
