COST Action BM1404: Initial Road Map for Myeloid Cell Research in Europe, Barcelona

Immense headway was made at the COST Action BM1404’s first two-day Management Committee/Working Group Meeting which was held at the School of Biology, University of Barcelona, Spain, at the end of March 2015. Most significantly, European scientific consensus was reached on which myeloid cell types in which diseases and species would be the focus of Mye-EUNITER network’s research during phase one of the four-year Action. The meeting was well attended with representatives from nearly all the 24 member states.

One of the main instruments to further exchange between the key laboratories of this Action will be Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM), allowing young scientists to conduct specified myeloid research at partner institutions thus promoting a European-wide expertise in this field. The STSMs are scheduled to start in summer 2015. “It has been a great pleasure to host the first scientific meeting of this Action. All the participants have shown a lot of enthusiasm and important decisions have already been taken at this meeting. Some of the working groups went home with a list of homework,” stated Annabel Valledor, host of the Barcelona meeting.
