IMPROVE-PD – Successful Kick-off of EuTRiPD’s Follow-Up Programme

The EuTRiPD consortium proudly presents its follow-up programme, IMPROVE-PD, a project funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme under the initiative Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks.

IMPROVE-PD will continue to provide training opportunities for young researchers and connect leading academic and industrial researchers who will collaborate in the shared goal of understanding the mechanisms of
inflammation-driven cardiovascular disease in Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) patients, developing individualized approaches to identify those at risk, and testing new therapies in them.

Kick-off meeting of IMPROVE-PD in Madrid

The project's kick-off meeting took place in Madrid on January 25, 2019. The principal investigators and future supervisors of the early stage researchers (ESRs) to be hired in IMPROVE-PD met to discuss the common work-plan and recruiting strategy.
