September 2021- The Center for Omic Sciences (COS), member of OmicsTech and managed by Eurecat in collaboration with Rovira i Virgili University, is participating in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - Innovative Training Networks (MSCA-ITN-2020), Col_Res: Colonisation Resistance project improving Metabolomics and data integration, and launching new approaches to microbiota studies.

 

The Col_Res (Colonisation Resistance) network comprises a world-leading group of investigators that will investigate the mechanisms by which the gut microbiota protects against serious foodborne pathogens (Salmonella, E. coli, Listeria, Citrobacter and Campylobacter) and lead to the identification of next generation probiotics that can protect against multiple infectious agents.

 

Eurecat is one of the partners of the project with University College Cork, ETH-Zurich, Imperial College London, Universite Clermont Auvergne, Charite Universitaets medizing Berlin. The project is funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions  - Innovative Training Networks (ITN) and has a consortium participated for Eurecat, University College Cork, ETH-Zurich, Imperial College London, Universite Clermont Auvergne, Charite Universitaets medizing Berlin. The project will end on February 2025.
