PersonalizeAF aims to change the paradigm of classification and diagnosis of AF delivering a precision medicine strategy based on the personalized characterization of each atrial substrate and disease manifestation.
PersonalizeAF aims to create an innovative multinational, multi-sectorial, multidisciplinary and excellent doctoral training network programme to train 15 ESRs in cardiac genetics, cardiac ion channel mapping, stem cell experimentation, novel drug testing, signal and image processing, computer modelling and patient management.
The specific research objective of PersonalizeAF programme is to improve the success rate of therapies applied to patients with atrial fibrillation through the individual characterization of the disease through different diagnostic techniques. For this purpose, several items will be addressed:
To provide a high-level personalised multidisciplinary training program, both in technical, including enrolment in a PhD programme, and transferable skills (such as entrepreneurship, project management, ethical issues, IPR, open access), with the long-term aim to produce scientific leadership – foundation for ERC starting grants and/or industry leadership.
Disseminate the methods and tools developed by the project to a wide spectrum of stakeholders, ranging from the scientific community to corporate users; raise awareness in the general public about precision medicine and its fundamental role in cardiovascular disease management; and to encourage biomedical and bioengineering vocational careers among young students, with special emphasis on women.
