Aims

We aim to conduct large-scale collaborative research for Tourette Syndrome and related neuro- developmental disorders and train the next generation of experts in the field. Read more...

Project Plan

Our activities will run in inter-dependent directions with a common goal to understand the etiology of Tourette Syndrome and translate research
into therapies.

The Fellows

We propose a comprehensive training programme designed to prepare Early Stage Researchers in order to pursue successful careers in academic, business, and policy sectors.
Positions are now open...

Projects

The work of the Early Stage Researchers of our Training Network will help elucidate the genetic, environmental, and neural basis of TS and comorbid disorders such as OCD and ADHD. Read more...

Vacancies

We seek energetic post-graduate researchers to undertake positions as Early Stage Researcher (PhD student) as part of TS-EUROTRAIN, a Marie Curie Initial Training Network. TS-EUROTRAIN is a multidisciplinary and intersectorial network focused on the study of Gilles de la Tourette Syndrome (TS) and related neurodevelopmental disorders.

TS is an inherited neuropsychiatric disorder that is marked by multiple motor and vocal tics and high comorbidity rates with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder. TS-EUROTRAIN encompasses 12 complementary PhD projects aiming to disentangle the relative contribution of environment and genetics in TS etiology, elucidate the neurobiological underpinnings of TS and related disorders, investigate the mechanism of effect of existing drugs for TS, while at the same time seeking to identify novel druggable targets. Ten partners from academia and industry as well as eight associated partners will provide a multi-national and interdisciplinary training infrastructure, designed to equip participating students with the necessary knowledge and sets of tools to pursue successful careers.
