Meet the DevelopMed Supervisors for Call 1

The ‘Developing the Next Generation of Research Leaders in Precision Oncology’ (DevelopMed) MSCA COFUND Programme is delighted to announce that we have eight excellent academic supervisors committed to hosting fellows through Call 1 of the programme. The DevelopMed academic supervisors are leading experts in a wide range of research areas related to precision oncology. Many of the committed programme supervisors are also Principal Investigators in Precision Oncology Ireland (POI), a Science Foundation Ireland Strategic Partnership Programme coordinated by Systems Biology Ireland (SBI). With two committed supervisors also having had experience hosting fellows in SBIs previous MSCA COFUND TopMed10, the DevelopMed programme provides a panel of exceptionally strong potential supervisors for interested applicants.
