Innovative Training Network Award for Bas Teusink

We are pleased to announce that Amsterdam Academic Alliance (AAA) Data Science Project Leader, Bas Teusink (VU Systems Bioinformatics), is part of a consortium that managed to obtain a highly competitive MSCA Innovative Training Networks (ITN) funding award. Together with colleagues from academia and the industry from all over Europe, the Teusink group will be involved in the ‘SynCrop’ project.

The Synthetic Circuits for Robust Orthogonal Production project will generate a cohort of well-trained young scientists with inter-disciplinary skills in quantitative biology, cell biophysics, cell engineering and microbial physiology. Scientists with these inter-disciplinary skills are highly needed, but researchers with such a broad spectrum of training are lacking due to the fragmentation of the emerging field of synthetic biology across Europe. The goal of the SynCrop project is to rewire cell regulation into controllable and modular circuitry for the efficient production of food additives.

With this grant, a total of 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) can be appointed, of which one will be housed within the group of Teusink.
