The InFLAMES Research Flagship (Innovation Ecosystem based on the Immune System) and its first selection process for postdoctoral researcher positions has been completed. Four postdoctoral researchers have been selected by the InFLAMES Executive Team. They will strengthen InFLAMES research groups of immunological research.
Although vaccination programmes against pertussis are very effective in Europe, new Finnish study shows that the disease is still very common among middle-aged adults in various European countries. At the same time, the results show that the disease is underdiagnosed as the annually reported figures are considerably lower than those discovered in the study.
InFLAMES Flagship Strengthens Its Expertise by Recruiting Innovative Immunology Experts from Professors to Project Researchers
The joint immunology flagship effort of the University of Turku and Åbo Akademi University is recruiting over 20 top experts. With the recruitments, the InFLAMES Flagship strengthens its role as the centre for top-level immunology research and development.
The Academy of Finland has made the funding decisions to strengthen the research-related profiling of Finnish universities. The University of Turku was granted €6.8 million of the Profi 6 funding. The funding supports strategic, cross-disciplinary research of the University.
The research and development initiative ‘Innovation Ecosystem Based on the Immune System (InFLAMES)’ has received significant funding from the Academy of Finland.
