EpiSyStem - Epigenetics and System Biology of Stem cells and Reprogramming, is a Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) funded by the EU and coordinated by Prof Eran Meshorer.
It is the first ever Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN (Innovative Training Network) project coordinated by the Hebrew University. Budget managed is 3.6M Euros.
EpiSyStem is comprised of eight leading academic partners and two professional industrial partners training 14 PhD students.
It combines chromatin biology in stem cells, early embryos and reprogramming, including the modelling of human neurological, chromatin-related diseases with bioinformatics, epigenetics / epigenomics, and systems biology at the population and single cell / single embryo level.
This multidisciplinary approach enables profound training and deep, systems-level understanding of chromatin biology and epigenetic regulation of stem cells, differentiation and reprogramming, with a strong support by industrial partners.
