“Ex Ovo Omnia”: “From the egg comes all”(William Harvey 1578-1657):
The EUROVA training network recognizes that excellent basic oocyte biology research is central to the development of safe new therapies and interventions in fertility enhancement or fertility preservation for all mammalian species. We invite enthusiastic talented early-stage researchers to apply to join our exciting multidisciplinary research programme. The EUROVA training network will train 15 PhD students who will work on projects that include the safe storage and re-transplantation of ovarian tissue from female cancer patients, identifying therapies to improve the quality of oocytes from patients who suffer from metabolic conditions, adapting ART to save the northern white rhinoceros from extinction and building a cross species compendium of the molecular pathways and key processes involved in oocyte growth and development.
The position, up to 31.10. 2024, is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union, Grant Agreement number 860960.
Project 17: The role of ROS during oogenesis
Scientist(s)-in-charge: Prof. Valentina Lodde, University of Milan, Italy
Reactive oxygen species (ROS) have always been regarded as the ones which are wrongdoers, but recent studies have uncovered the importance of ROS in many physiological processes as second messengers. Moreover, it is emerging that ROS have a precise function during animal development. However, little is known on the specific physiological function of ROS in mammalian oogenesis as well as in the developing embryo as well as on the specific contribution of the maternal ovarian compartment. This project aims at dissecting the putative physiological function of ROS during oogenesis, and precisely at critical stages of oocyte maturation function.Benefits
