Leading science, pioneering therapies


The Marie Curie Initial Training Network, Vascular Endothelial interactionS and SpEciaLization (VESSEL), project is funded by the European Union under the FP7 programme.

The VESSEL training network brings together 7 leading European laboratories and 2 industrial partners to study the development of specialised blood and lymphatic vessels in embryonic and in adult tissues under normal and pathological conditions; as well as advancing imaging techniques and developing novel methods for drug delivery.

By covering a broad training schedule including a range of technical expertise, promoting collaboration and forging strong links between academic and private sectors, the consortium aims to provide cutting edge multidisciplinary training for future specialists in vascular biology.

The project is in close partnership with:
