Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine

Marie-Curie Action: "Initial Training Networks"


Machine Learning for Personalized Medicine comprises 12 research labs at 10 partner institutions and 2 associated partners in 8 different countries worldwide. The MLPM-network is funded with ca. 3.75 million Euros by the European Union through the 7th Framework Programme for a period of 4 years. 13 PhD students and 1 post-doctoral researcher are receiving a unique training within a stimulating research network. Every PhD student will complete 2 secondments, with a duration of 3 months each, at 2 partner labs.
