Aims of the Network
Chronic inflammation is a systemic disorder resulting from the dysregulation of multiple, mechanistically unrelated higher order biological processes. The MAIN (Migration And Inflammation) Consortium, funded within the sixth framework program of the EU, will promote the integration of multi-disciplinary research groups to achieve a thorough understanding of directed inflammatory cell migration towards and across injured tissues. To achieve its goals, the MAIN Consortium will be based on four developmental Research Programs (Tool Development Program, Target Identification Program, Target Validation Program and Drug Development Program), three Support Facilities (Imaging, Proteomics and Microarrays) and one Core Facility (Bioinformatics). One of the research goals is to integrate specific knowledge and technological approaches to provide a unified explanation on how multiple inputs received by inflammatory cells result in spatially and temporally coordinated outputs, affecting the migratory behavior of such cells. To spread excellence through education and training, MAIN will implement a Training and Education Program (TEP), with practical courses and workshops for graduate students and technicians.
