Joint Transnational Call 2022

Closing dates:

The aim of the call is to enable scientists in different countries to build an effective collaboration on a common interdisciplinary research project based on complementarities and sharing of expertise, with expected impact to use the results in the future for benefit of patients

  • Topic: Development of new analytic tools and pathways to accelerate diagnosis and facilitate diagnostic monitoring of rare diseases. Research proposals should cover at least one of the following areas:
    • Phenotype-driven diagnosis.

    • Prognostic markers/biomarkers investigations for early diagnosis and monitoring.

    • Functional strategies to globally stratify variants of unknown significance (VUS) for clinical use.

    • Development of pathway models to enable diagnosis, especially for newly discovered diseases that may share underlying molecular mechanisms with already known diseases.

It is possible to use cellular and animal models for validation of the new diagnostic approaches in the subtopics listed above where relevant.
