1 PhD position at Centre Hospitalier Universitaire-Montpellier is available in the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Network “Chromrare: Unveiling the molecular basis of chromatinopathies to delineate innovative therapeutic solutions''. Chromrare has been conceived to decipher how pathogenic variants of essential chromatin regulators impact on both the genetic and non- genetic function of the genome and lead to diseases featuring the dysfunction of chromatin, which are collectively referred to as chromatinopathies. Addressing this question will further strengthen our understanding of the basic biology of the cell nucleus and help thereby determining the potentially druggable phenotypic features of chromatinopathies. Chromrare is a consortium of high-profile universities, research institutions and companies located in Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Poland, the Netherlands, and UK.
Chromrare will set-up an intra-sectoral, cross-disciplinary training programme that would prepare the next generation of researchers equipped with advanced theoretical, technical and computational skills to study fundamental aspects of chromatin biology and their impact on chromatinopathies.
