COVID-19: Where does it really come from?
Since the first outbreak of the novel pneumonia (COVID-19) in Wuhan (China), a lot of conjectures have been formulated as to the origin of the causative virus, SARS-CoV-2, which is the seventh coronavirus known to infect humans.

Postdoctoral Fellow in Tumor Immune Evasion - CT0320
Immune evasion is a hallmark of cancer progression and represents a major hurdle to the design of effective therapeutic strategies. We recently uncovered a widely conserved mechanism by which resistant tumor cells respond to immune effector cell attack. The ACTIVASION project aims at exploring how this mechanism (i.e. fast remodeling of the tumor cell actin cytoskeleton) alters the structure and the function of the immunological synapse, the cell-cell interaction interface used by immune cells to recognize and kill target cancer cells.
Data Manager & BI Specialist - AA0320
The Data Manager & BI Specialist, under the direction of the IT BISManager, will ensure data organization, storage and analysis while always upholding agreed-upon security standards. He/she will be responsible for overseeing the development and use of data systems, in order to deliver high quality solutions that span multiple technologies/platforms.
Three LIH projects to be supported by “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships”
Postdoctoral fellows Amela Jusic, from the LIH Department of Population Health (DoPH), Marie Boudaud and Tomasz Uchanski, from the LIH Department of Infection and Immunity (DII), have been awarded financial support in the framework of the European Commission’s “Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships” funding scheme. The programme will back the scientists’ work on hypertension, receptor-chemokine interactions and Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD).
TTM Project Manager - RK0320
Transversal Translational Medicine (TTM) at the LIH creates a translational bridge between fundamental research and the clinic so that improved/advanced diagnosis, therapy and prevention may help patients in Luxembourg and beyond. TTM wishes to recruit a Project Manager. The incumbent will be project lead for EATRIS-plus project (50%) and other TTM research programs (50%). The aim of EATRIS-Plus is to help pooling and exploiting the translational academic capacities of the infrastructure in omic technologies to enable researchers to better address the scientific and societal challenge of personalized medicine. Additionally, the coordination office and 13 existing national nodes of the infrastructure will participate in implementing joint outreach, training, industry engagement and international collaboration activities to further build national capacity, increase users’ trust and strengthen EATRIS and the ERA global scientific leadership.
