The Molecular, Cellular and Clinical Approach to Healthy Aging (ENOCH) project focuses on finding treatment for the diseases that most affect aging, such as dementia, cancer and heart disease. Five scientific centers in Moravia cooperate on it, in addition to our center it is the Institute of Molecular and Translational Medicine of Palacký University in Olomouc, RECAMO center of the Masaryk memorial Cancer Institute, the Department of Neurology of the Medical Faculty of Olomouc University Hospital and Blood Cancer Research Group at the University of Ostrava.
The first meeting of all twenty FNUSA-ICRC research teams participating in this project took place on Thursday, April 8. This is two thirds of all teams within our center, so the ENOCH project is given a lot of attention. The course of the meeting also corresponded to this, the program mainly included information on the status of fulfillment of individual tasks and mutual cooperation within the FNUSA-ICRC.
The results of the online meeting were then entirely positive. Meeting the individual milestones of the project should be smooth and there has been a big step forward in the area of research quality. It was also stated that due to the state of work on the ENOCH project, in the future our center could try to apply for a similarly significant grant in cooperation with domestic or foreign research centers. The next meeting should be at the end of June.
