2018 Oct 22-25 – 1st Annual meeting, review meeting + 2-day training

SAFERs 1st Annual Meeting (Oct 22) featured scientific presentations from PhD students, which also meet with their complete supervisor teams. In the mid-term meeting (Oct 23) the whole consortium met with the EU Project Officer to discuss recruitment, training, preliminary results and exchange of knowledge. The two final days featured training planned by the PhD students in modelling and pharmacology, respectively.

2018 Jun 30 – SAFER crystallography supervisor Louise Nikolajsen featured on scienceandsociety.eu

Louise Nikolajsen is the practical academic supervisor for SAFERs crystallography. Through an exchange programme, MAX4ESSFUN granted to SAFER senior supervisors Jette Kastrup, UCPH and Derek Logan, Lund University she conducted a joint project on the serotonin 5-HT2C receptor – the primary off-target of ligands for the SAFER target, 5-HT2A.
