    Grant beneficiaries & survey assessment

    In order to support young investigator ́s career development and to encourage interactions among the participants in the COST Action 17112, we are launching a New Insights: Young Investigators Seminar Series. We propose this as a series of talks, ONCE monthly, given by early career investigators (ECIs) – with the supervision of their tutors (both hosts and mentors). The outline of the session would be a brief introduction of the speaker by the mentor, a talk around 45 min with 15 min left for discussion. Conferences will be held the 3rd Wednesday of each month at 16.30h (CET) starting from June 17.

    Our next speaker will be Dr. Jorge Simón Espinosa, CIC bioGUNE , Metabolomics Unit, CIBERehd-ISCIII.

    Our last speaker was Daniel Di Zeo Sánchez, although now based in Malaga, Daniel’s family background comes from a long history of international mobility across 5 different countries. He graduated in Biochemistry with a mention in Molecular and Applied Biochemistry by the University of Malaga (UMA) and University of Seville (2013-2017) and holds a master’s in Advanced Biotechnology (UMA, 2018-2019). After finishing his superior studies, he benefited from long-term grants and contracts such as a 6-months grant for studying molecular biology of cancer, and an 18-month contract in the field of microbiology.

    His most recent professional experience came at the end of 2019 when, moved for the curiosity of solving human health problems, he joined the Hepatogastroenterology, Pharmacology and Translational Clinical Therapeutics group at the Biomedical Research Institute of Malaga (IBIMA). Since then, he enrolled in the PhD programme of Biomedicine, Translational Research and New Health Technologies (UMA) to pursue his thesis project, focused on studying mechanistic and immunological features of the disease known as drug-induced liver injury, in continuous interaction with clinicians and the pharmaceutical industry.

    Daniel di Zeo Sánchez will present his experience during a 3-month Short Term Scientific Mission in the laboratory of Prof. Joana P. Miranda, at the Faculty of Pharmacy of the University of Lisbon. During this period, he worked on in vitro techniques for the study of immunological mechanisms of drugs related to idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity, using different sources of liver and immune cells as models.

    Our last speaker was  Pamela Bachour El Azzi, professor at the Lebanese University, Université Saint Joseph and Université Antonine for 7 years. She is commercial director and scientific consultant at Wepredic.

    Dr. Bachour El Azzi has completed a PhD in Biology and health sciences with a specialty of toxicology at the Université de Rennes I and the Lebanese University. The main PhD work of Dr. Bachour El Azzi was the characterization of bile acid transporters in HepaRG cells and the investigation of drug-induced cholestatic mechanisms. She studied cellular mechanisms underlying chlorpromazine-induced intrahepatic cholestasis in vitro in the presence or not of an inflammatory context.

    Launch of Personalised Prescribing report

    Prof Guruprasad Aithal, Vice Chair of the COST Action CA17112 who presented evidence to the working party said- ‘There are inter-individual variations in the way medicines work. Considering one’s genetic make-up assists while prescribing, increasing the benefits and reducing the adverse effect of the medications. We know of genetic variations which effect over 40 medicines. We are calling for Health Services to offer genetic tests to improve safe and effective prescribing’.
