PolarNet is a European-wide research and training consortium bringing together academic and private partners from seven European countries to study the basic principles of cell polarity.  This multi-disciplinary initiative will combine a variety of model systems with cutting edge approaches including genome modification, biochemistry, live imaging, optogenetics, quantitative image analysis, biophysics and theoretic modelling to uncover the mechanisms for how cells polarise.  Beginning October 1st, 2015, this programme will fund 15 PhD students in labs throughout the network as well as scientific exchange, training and collaboration between network labs.  For more information (or to apply for a PhD position), see the PolarNet website.
