Cell2Cell was funded with 3.9 Mio € during the first call of application
Cell2Cell is an international network of academic and industry groups, which provides multidisciplinary and intersectoral training for early-stage researchers (ESRs) in the fields of pathogen biology, chromatin biology, bioinformatics, and single-cell methods. The Network investigates how cell-to-cell heterogeneity in chromatin structure enables pathogens to overcome challenges critical to establish persistent infections.
Cell2Cell research projects aim to link changes in chromatin structures and genome organization to the adaptation of pathogens to the host environment and evasion from the host immune response.

Cheers to our successful workshop on Bioinformatics in Istanbul with our partner Ugur Sezermann, covering a broad range of topics from NGS analysis and integration to scientific thinking and career paths after the PhD. @MSCActions2
A big congratulations 🎉 to our ESR #JonasGockel and @Cell2_Cell member @RichardBartfai for the article about DNA replication in Malaria parasites in @NAR_Open. Have a look 🎊🎊
A huge congratulations 🎉 to our @Cell2_Cell member @BienkoMagda for receiving the @ERC_Research Consolidator Grant #ERCCoG for the "Radialis" project to uncover the radial genome organization in the nucleus. Very well deserved 👏
A big congratulations 🎉 to our ESR #JonasGockel and @Cell2_Cell members #TillVoss and @RichardBartfai for the spotlight article about sexual differentiation in Malaria parasites in @TrendsParasitol. Have a look 🎊🎊
