I.F. LAB is taking part in the EU project entitled HORIZON 2020 RISE MSCA
We are happy to inform that I.F. LAB is taking part in the project HORIZON 2020 RISE MSCA, the EU Framework programme for Research and Innovation, namely Microelements in Life Expectancy and Aging (MILEAGE). The start date is May 2017 and its duration is 48 months until April 2021.
Within the framework of the project I.F. LAB attended the organizational meeting in Amiens in June 2017. The aim of the meeting was the introduction of the action and participating countries and overview of scientific objectives and research models of the proposed study.
Microelement in Life Expectancy and Ageing (MILEAGE) is a project that has its roots in both nutrition and in cell biology. Its aim is to show how the processes of ageing can impact on zinc and copper homeostasis at a cellular level, from the gut mucosal cells to the pancreatic and liver cells, which are key homeostatic gatekeepers for controlling body metal absorption and excretion.
The Coordinator of the Project is:
- UNIVERSITE DE PICARDIE JULES VERNE (France)
- THE UNIVERSITY COURT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF ABERDEEN (United Kingdom)
- INSTITUT NATIONAL DE LA SANTE ET DE LA RECHERCHE MEDICALE (France)
- LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION ENTERPRISE I.F. LAB (Ukraine)
