The ITN Fellows

Within this  ITN project  we trained  12 young Fellows  with a different scientific background to go beyond the classical faculty border. Bridging nanotechnology, physics, chemistry, computer modelling, pharmacology and microbiology together we have facilitated the transfer of expertise acquired within the network in both academia and industry.

The main goal of the Training has been to prepare young researcher for cross disciplinary tasks.  Our Fellows have achieved a scientific culture of mutual understanding across traditional scientific disciplines. Making the young fellows experts not only in their own field of study but able to understand neighbouring disciplines, has been the main goal of the present project.


We offered combined research in related areas such as clinical microbiology, electrophysiology, X-ray crystallography, molecular modelling, bioinformatics, chemistry and medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, single molecule manipulation, and high-throughput technology.

The ITN Partnership

mc-e-euThe Marie Sklodowska Curie Initial Training NetworkTranslocation” is a multidisciplinary  project that reflects an outstanding collaboration among partners of a previous Marie Curie funded project and an ongoing Innovative Medicine Initiative (IMI) project.


imi-logoIn particular the IMI project is a highly novel private-public partnership providing a unique platform for research as it benefits from the collaboration of 5 major global players in antibiotic drug development, three of which agreed to train our young Fellows. This opens a unique opportunity to integrate a larger number of young researchers inside a more industrial environment.

Also, within this project two partners from the private sector have directly participated as associated partners.

The first partner from the private sector, Nanion Technologies GmbH, (NAN) develops state-in-the-art nanotechnology to miniaturize and automatize electrophysiology. This SME offered and will continue to offer blocks of one month training on their instruments. The student have learnt industrial development skills.

The second SME (BioVersys) is a recently created start up in Basel devoted to develop novel antibiotics.
