My project

What is your project/research about?

To investigate the role of brain endothelial Nemo in microvascular pathologies and vascular dementia.

By investigating the role of brain endothelial Nemo during the development of microvascular pathologies, and to establish a novel in vivo model for vascular dementia.

Why did you apply for a Marie Curie ITN and especially this project?

Marie Curie ITN is a really nice research program offers a nice mobility and good opportunities for related education. It brings young scientists from different countries who works more or less in the same field together and give a good platform for us to communicate each other. This will help young scientists to establish their network. I think all in all, Marie Curie ITN is really a great program for my future career development.

Neuroinflammation is an interesting topic as it plays important role in many pathologies and diseases. I was quite interested in the topic for the inflammation in the vasculature, therefore the project I am working on fits my research interests.

What is so fascinating for you on research in general?

Investigation itself is fascinating to me. It is interesting to know what happened in our bodies.

What do you do in your free time?

I enjoy a lot with traveling. Stay in EU gives me a great opportunities to travel around. I also like to watch movies and do some reading in the spare time.

What are your plans for your future?

So far, my future plan is to find a post doctor position probably in EU.

Regarding our meetings:

Please give a short summary what you remember about are Network Meetings?

In general, I quite enjoy the workshop part. All the topics fit to our needs. Most of the lecturers really did a great jobs. We could really take part in in the courses and learnt a lot. The progress report part is also quite helpful. One thing, it is a quite chance for us to summary our own work and good practice for the presentation. Another thing, it is also nice to follow other member’s work. As our research topic more or less close to each other, we could learned new things from each other. As for the external speakers, they gave us a variety of lectures from state of the art techniques to quite interesting research topics. It’s like a mini conference. We could learn the latest research from our field and get to know the related people as well.

What are the impressions and learnings you take with you from each meeting?

Already mentioned in the last question.

What was the most useful workshop?

Good Scientific Practice & Biometry and Statistic
