The STSM grantee should submit a short scientific report to the Host institution (for information purposes only) and the Action Chair or STSM Coordinator (Committee) for formal approval within 30 days after the end date of the STSM. Below you can find descriptions of their research in the Host Institution.
Eliza Monzon Casanova
PURPOSE OF THE STSM: B cells are the cells of our immune system that secrete antibodies after activation and differentiation. Therefore, B cells are a crucial component of our immune system to fight infections...
Grantee name: Eliza Monzon Casanova (The... More
Patricia Soblechero Martin
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:The aim of this STSM was to validate exon skipping efficiency using an antisense oligonucleotide (AON) to skip exon 51 (the same we have tried before in DMD human myoblasts) and to test dystrophin expression comparing control and DMD... More
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:During the visit, we evaluated electroretinographic (ERG) data previously collected by our groups in mouse models of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Molecular and biochemical results were then compared to the ERG responses...
Maria Ines de Oliveira Alvelos
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:The main goals of my PhD project are to: 1. Understand the role of alternative splicing in pancreatic β-cell dysfunction and death in the context of type 1 diabetes (T1D); 2. Identify key splicing factors and harmful mRNA splice variants... More
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:...Previous observation suggested that oligonucleotides could interfere with the transcriptional process of the target thereby reducing the efficiency of the therapeutic approach. the purpose of this STSM was to assess the side-effect... More
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:The aim of the internship in Biodonostia Health Research Institute as part of the Action CA17103 Delivery of Antisense RNA Therapeutics was to get to know the qualitative and quantitative techniques for protein identification in mammalian... More
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:Learning methods of synthesis, modification and testing nanoparticles as drug carriers and diagnostic instruments in in vitro and in vivo models. After STSM my goal is to transfer this knowledge to my research in the field of virology,... More
Sandra Pérez Ramos
PURPOSE OF THE STSM:The main objective of this STSM was to design antisense oligonucleotides (AON) to target the COL6A1 c.877 G>A mutation for their further characterization in our patients’ fibroblasts. The laboratory of developmental neurosciences... More
