PTEN Research - Improving understanding of disease mechanisms of PTEN Harmatoma Tumour Syndrome (PHTS)


Event details

Date 28.06.2024
Category Conferences - Seminars

Through this call, PTEN Research seeks to identify academic research proposals that aim to progress the understanding of the molecular and cellular mechanisms that are disrupted upon PTEN mutation/loss and that drive the pathobiology of PHTS. Within the broad spectrum of manifestations linked to PHTS, we are particularly interested in projects that are focused on the non-malignant aspects of PHTS, especially vascular anomalies and neurodevelopmental deficits, to align with the Foundation’s therapy development efforts.  The call is open to basic and translational research proposals, especially those that offer a translational pathway/potential future clinical impact.

Duration:   2-3 years

Funding:   GBP 220,000

Eligibility to apply for funding is not restricted to any specific geography. Applications will only be considered from principal investigators who hold a MD or PhD and have an established research programme or faculty position in a recognised academic or clinical research institution.
