School of Pharmacy researcher is a partner in a successful EU Horizon 2020 Initial Training Network
Dr. Cormac Gahan of the School of Pharmacy and the School of Microbiology in UCC is a partner in a successful EU Horizon 2020 award to establish an Initial Training Network in the area of Listeria monocytogenes biology.
The ITN will be led by Dr. Pascal Piveteau in the Université de Bourgogne at Dijon and incorporates nine different research centres and associated industry partners.
Dr. Gahan and Dr. Piveteau are long term research collaborators having previously been awarded Ulysses travel awards by the French embassy to foster collaboration between French and Irish Universities. Dr. Gahan, who is a funded investigator in the Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre (APC), hopes that this award will enhance our understanding of how the important foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes transits between different environments during the pathogenic cycle.
