CaSR Biomedicine - Calcium Sensing Receptor



The CaSR Biomedicine European Training Network (ETN) is a fully translational project that utilises a single molecule, the calcium-sensing receptor (CaSR), influencing a range of physiological and disease processes, to develop a unique, strong multidisciplinary and intersectoral scientific training programme training 14 young scientists to become specialists in G protein-coupled receptor biology and signalling.

This European Network formed by 13 research groups from eight countries will undertake a systems biology approach to study the importance of cellular context in the functionality of the same molecule across different tissues (e.g. vasculature, pancreas, gastrointestinal tract) and pathologies (cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, sarcopenia, cancer) to identify novel therapeutic approaches of CaSR-targeting drugs that could be repurposed for the management of these major diseases. 

The CaSR Biomedicine Network has received funding from the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions of the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme under REA grant agreement no. 675228.

The CaSR Biomedicine Network is a continuation of the previous Multifaceted CaSR project.
