Kickstart your career

organovir aims to train young researchers in a consortium of public and private experts that will enable them to lead innovation in the field of organoids for virus research.

Within organovir the research programme is a full package ITN programme which enables 15 ESRs to familiarize themselves not only with the scientific and technical aspects of innovative 3D culture systems for virus research, but also with the financial, commercial, ethical, communicative, policy and dissemination aspects enabling optimal valorisation of organoids.

Recruitment

Our call for applications closed on the 1st of April and in total we have received 566 applications! We want to thank all our applicants for submitting their application and expressing their interest to join our team. Currently all applications are being reviewed. We will inform our applicants if they are selected for an interview by the 17th of April.

Organoids

Organoid technology originates from developmental biology and cancer research – fields that have only limited overlap with virology. organovir is the first consortium that brings this expertise together in an innovative programme that will dramatically enhance our understanding of the possibilities of 3D models for virology.

Transforming the Virology Landscape

Establishing human organoids as superior models for virus research, thus replacing animal models and reducing animal use.

Using a multi-disciplinary approach with experts in bioengineering, virology, bio-business, policy, and ethics. Together we develop new organoid models for virology.
