Call Details

Work Programme : Health - Health, demographic change and wellbeing
Call Identifier : SC1-PM-01-2016: Multi omics for personalised therapies addressin
Call Type : General International Cooperation Call
Call Description : Multi omics for personalised therapies addressing diseases of the immune system
International initiatives such as the International Cancer Genome Consortium (ICGC), the International Human Epigenome Consortium (IHEC) and the International Human Microbiome Consortium have generated high quality comprehensive large scale data catalogues and maps.
The scope of this topic is to integrate and use high quality genome, epigenome, proteome, metabolome, microbiome data produced by large scale international initiatives with innovative imaging, functional, structural and lifestyle/environmental data, and combine these with disease-oriented functional analysis to contribute to the understanding of health and disease with the final objective of selecting relevant biomarkers for clinical validation that will lead to the development of new targeted therapies for diseases of the immune system.
Proposals must build on data from IHEC and, as appropriate, on data from other international initiatives.
In line with the Union's strategy for international cooperation in research and innovation proposals should create strategic synergies between scientists across disciplines, sectors and around the globe.
International cooperation is requested. Proposals addressing rare diseases of the immune system are not in scope of this action.
