ctDNA and CTC training school

The COST Action CA17118 (TRANSCOLONCAN), Tracepigen, the DCCC Nation Research Center for ctDNA guided cancer, and the European Liquid Biopsy Society invite you to apply for participation in the training school for detection and analysis of circulating tumor DNA (ctDNA) and circulating tumor cells (CTC).

The training school took place at Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark on March 28-30 2022.

The training school invited 35 students from all over Europe to three days of lectures, networking, and a lot of discussions.
Thank you to all lecturers and participants.

Meeting in the Steering Committee

The steering committee will meet online on Thursday the 28th of April to discuss the incoming applications for funding from the center, and the assessments from the executive committee.

The meeting will be online and it is possible for members of the steering committee to transfer their votes to the chairman of the steering committee (Lars Dyrskjøt Andersen) 

Deadline for application for funding is the 7th of March

Application deadline

You can apply for funding through the ctDNA center for your research project focusing on ctDNA guided intervention or development of new methods or knowledge relevant for the entire center.

The application form will open in the fall 2021
