1.2 Million Euro for the INSTINCT project

Together with an international consortium from Portugal, Italy, the Netherlands and Canada, Professor Ulrich Martin, head of LEBAO, has been awarded a grant of 1.2 Million Euro by the E-Rare ERA-NET programme for a stem cell based project targeting rare diseases. The INSTINCT project will investigate the use of induced pluripotent stem cells to identify novel drug combinations for the treatment of cystic fibrosis-based lung and liver diseases and will run from June 2016 for a period of three years.
