EURIPRED: Call for application for Free Services

02 October 2015

The European Research Infrastructures for Poverty Related Diseases (EURIPRED) has issued the following call:

5th call for application for free services.  List of reagents extended

Deadline: 31 October 2015

EURIPRED services

EURIPRED facilitates and supports translational research for poverty related diseases, such as HIV, TB, malaria and hepatitis.  Today the 5th call for application for FREE Services (for European scientists) is launched.  The free services for this call are:

In comparison to former EURIPRED calls, the list of reagents extended with:

  • neutralising hmAb e137 against HCV E2, produced by Polymun;
  • CFP10 IgG antibody ELISA, CFP10 IgA antibody ELISA and CFP10 IgM antibody ELISA, produced by Lionex;
  • HBV peptide microarray developed by JPT.

Please Yann [dot] LeDuff [at] nibsc [dot] org (subject: Wish%20regarding%20free%20Euripred%20services) (inform us) if you have other wishes or requests, not mentioned in the lists of available services.
Application for free services will be selected under a peer-reviewed process. Only European user groups (from EU Member States or Associated States) can apply for the free services, and only to EURIPRED Service infrastructures outside their own country. For scientists based in countries outside the EU Member States or its Associated States, access is subject to a range of charges according to the service requested (see also Eligibility Criteria). With agreement with EC, scientific excellence should be the main selection criterion i.e. objectives, feasibility, innovation, quality and record of investigators, quality of the proposed methodology, potential impact (need for knowledge dissemination, sustainability), compliance with national and international standards of research are considered to be sub-components of scientific excellence.

EURIPRED video tutorials

EURIPRED also provides video tutorials for education purposes. Currently 2 video tutorials are available online:

1. Video tutorial: Peptide Library Generation. The tutorial is provided by JPT Peptide Technologies in Berlin. Main topics:

  • principles of library generation
  • peptide libraries to display entire protein sequences in respect to isoforms, variations and homologue sequences
  • optimising libraries concerning overlap, amino acid-coverage
  • optimising concerning homologue protein sequences, protein coverage
  • Target group: scientists involved in library design, biomarker discovery, antigen/protein definition, etc. 

2. Video tutorial: Microarray Technology for Humoral Immune Monitoring. The tutorial is provided by JPT Peptide Technologies in Berlin. Main topics:

  • overview on technology
  • requirements for using microarray technology
  • assay workflow and data management
  • examples of different evaluations

Target group: scientists involved in humoral immune response monitoring, seromarker discovery, B-cell epitope mapping, target antigen discovery, etc.
