Toll-Like Receptor 4 activation and function in diseases: an integrated chemical-biology approach.
"at the heart of the inmunity"

TOLLerant Project - Newsletter July 2015


A two-day Summer School will be held on September, 22nd and 23rd 2015 at University of Milano Bicocca.

The school, titled Chemistry and biology of human immunity: focus on Toll-Like Receptors, will be focused on multidisciplinary topics such as medicinal chemistry, biochemistry, immunology related to TLR signaling. Lessons will be delivered by TOLLerant partners and will include a practical part.

The school is open to PhD students of different faculties including biotechnology, chemistry, medicine and biology.

PhD not belonging to the TOLLerant network should pay a registration fee of 150 E covering didactic material, local transport,  coffee and lunch breaks and will include a daily free pass for Expo.

The kick off meeting of TOLLerant project  was held  in Milan on 11 and 12 February 2015 at University of Milano  Bicocca.

During the scientific session of the meeting, each PI presented its research group focusing on the specific expertise and  the main research topics of work.  After a brief presentation, each partner proposed practically how to contribute to  the development of TOLLerant project.
The steps and development of the first-year research related to the project were planned in very collaborative and synergistic atmosphere.
During the meeting,  it was also planned also the first training and dissemination event of the project, that  will be held in Milan in the period between 21 to 25 September 2015.

The partners decided also that the school will focus on chemistry at the interface with immunology, and  will be linked to the European Night of Researchers through a  dissemination event open to the large public, and that this event would focus on the themes linked to chemistry and health,  chemistry and immunology.
