European Andrology Network – Research Coordination, Education And Public Awareness

Európska sieť pre andrológiu – koordinácia výskumu, vzdelávania a verejného povedomia

Duration: 27.10.2021 - 26.10.2025
Program: COST
Project leader: RNDr. Antalíková Jana PhD.
Annotation:ANDRONET aims to boost research collaboration, education and public awareness in andrology, a field of science that deals with male health. Currently there are no European- or world-wide networks through which researchers and clinicians in andrology can interact. The need for such a network is urgent due to the increasing incidence of infertility and testicular cancer, worrying reports of an association of poor reproductive function with poor health, and male predisposition to serious diseases, including Covid-19, leading to shorter life expectancy in men. Male infertility is common, but the patients are currently treated through assisted reproduction technology with primary burden on women. The aetiology of male reproductive problems is heterogeneous and comprises complex interactions between multiple genes and epigenetic factors, with largely unknown impact of environmental factors including infections. This COST Action proposes to increase multidisciplinary research collaboration and data exchange among andrology centres, and transfer of knowledge to European countries with less developed research. The initial consortium includes centres comprising complementary clinical and research expertise at a very high level, but ANDRONET will expand to reach a critical mass necessary for obtaining new knowledge and its possible commercial exploitation across Europe. ANDRONET aims to improve professional education in andrology which is fragmented among several medical branches and will contribute to the recognition of andrology as a medical subspecialty at European level. ANDRONET will strive to properly inform the public with evidence-based knowledge and thereby increase awareness of increasing male health problems and contribute to development of preventive measures.

European Network for Optimization of Veterinary Antimicrobial Treatment

Európska sieť pre optimalizáciu veterinárnej antimikrobiálnej liečby

Duration: 15.11.2019 - 14.11.2023
Program: COST
Project leader: RNDr. Bujňáková Dobroslava PhD

Genome Editing to Treat Humans Diseases

Liečba chorôb modifikáciou genómu

Duration: 15.9.2022 - 14.9.2026
Program: COST
Project leader: MMedSc Dremencov Eliyahu DrSc

Molecular and physiological properties of honeybee royal jelly proteins

Molekulárne a fyziologické vlastnosti proteínov včelej materskej kašičky

Duration: 1.4.2021 - 31.3.2024
Program: Bilateral - other
Project leader: RNDr. Bíliková Katarína PhD.
Annotation:Study of physiologically active proteins and peptides of honeybee products, especially honeybee jelly and honey, with the aim of applying the results of the research in human medicine and nutrition

Pan-European Network in Lipidomics and Epilipidomics

Paneurópska sieť pre lipidomiku a epilipidomiku

Duration: 13.10.2020 - 12.10.2024
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Balážová Mária PhD.
Annotation:Lipids represent a wide variety of molecules that play different biological roles such as energy resources, structural components or signaling molecules that regulate metabolic homeostasis. Most notably, lipids and oxidatively modified lipids have been found to be involved in regulating important mechanisms mediating tissue injury, inflammation, and related non-communicable diseases, which are responsible for near 70% of all deaths in developed countries. Lipidomics and Epilipidomics are the most promising strategies for the progress in the knowledge of lipids, aiming at biomarker discovery for the prevention, early diagnosis, monitoring, evaluation of diseases therapeutics. These approaches involve the use of complex protocols, different instrumentation and processing huge amounts of data. Effectiveness, while reducing the high costs associated with these technologies, requires a harmonized multidisciplinary approach involving coordinated actions from pan-European centres of lipidomics investigation. This will avoid unnecessary redundancy, improving reproducibility and ensuring efficient and productive research. EpiLipidNET aims to build and maintain a multidisciplinary pan-European network of researchers, clinicians and enterprises working in the field of lipidomics and epilipidomics to boost a hub of research excellence, advanced knowledge and technology transfer, to promote high level of training for young researches and facilitate clinical translation. EpiLipidNet will include five interactive Working Groups covering analytical methods and computational approaches in (epi)Lipidomics, clinical significance and applications, lipid signaling and mechanisms of action, dissemination and outreach.

Translational control in Cancer European Network

Translačná kontrola v európskej onkologickej sieti

Duration: 4.10.2022 - 3.10.2026
Program: COST
Project leader: Mgr. Messingerová Lucia PhD.

Lifting farm animal lives – laying the foundations for positive animal welfare

Zlepšenie životov hospodárskych zvierat - položenie základov pre pozitívne životné podmienky zvierat

Duration: 4.11.2022 - 3.11.2026
Program: COST
Project leader: RNDr. Košťál Ľubor CSc.
Annotation:The main aim and objective of the Action is to define and conceptualise positive animal welfare, to identify valid methodologies to assess positive animal welfare, to assess the understanding and acceptance of this concept, and to suggest potential animal- and resource-based indicators of positive welfare to be monitored on farm.

Biosecurity enhanced through training evaluation and raising awareness

Zvýšenie biosekurity v živočíšnej produkcii zvyšovaním povedomia a metód biokontroly pre redukciu rizík vzniku a šírenia infekčných ochorení.

Duration: 21.10.2021 - 20.10.2025
Program: COST
Project leader: MVDr. Lauková Andrea CSc.
Annotation:Biosecirity is a paramount importance to prevent the introduction and spread of pathogens and, consequently, to preserve health of farmed animals. Healthier animals result in better animal wellfere, better sustainability of animal production systems and less antimicrobial use. Despite these benefits, biosecurity is limited by different factors: lack of knowledge on ways for improvement, especially in extensive systems or settings with low resources, shortage of adequate ways to enhance communication, diversity methodologies and their cost-effectiveness, low number of trained professionals. To approach these challanges, project will evaluate how biosecurity is currently used and will use participative approaches to understand motivators and barriers for biosecurity implementation. Action will also compare existing methods and will identify which points has to be more trained and will develop courses for increase of professionals. Action will recommend priority research areas for future biosecurity improvement in animal production systems which will be reached via transdisciplinary group of investigators.
