As many of the RESOLUTE consortium members were participating in the Inaugural Conference of the International Transmembrane Transporter Society (ITTS) in Vienna, we seized this opportunity to have a focused RESOLUTE satellite meeting subsequent to the ITTS conference.Read more
For the first time, we presented the RESOLUTE consortium and the intended scope of our work to the wider scientific community. This happened during a dedicated session titled “RESOLUTE: an academic-industry IMI partnership to tackle SLCs” at the Inaugural Conference of the International Transmembrane Transporter Society (ITTS) in Vienna. The RESOLUTE session was a great success: there was a large audience that showed a lot of interest and was keen on giving feedback and engage in discussions with the speakers and other RESOLUTE consortium members.Read more
The RESOLUTE consortium will be present at the Inaugural Conference of the International Transmembrane Transporter Society in Vienna in September. The conference will run from September 18 to 21, 2018. RESOLUTE will have its own dedicated session entitled “RESOLUTE: an academic-industry IMI partnership to tackle SLCs” on Thursday, September 20. RESOLUTE speakers will be Claire Steppan (Pfizer), Giulio Superti-Furga (CeMM), Daniela Digles (University of Vienna), Daniel Lackner (CeMM) and Katharina Dürr (SGC Oxford).

RESOLUTE (Research empowerment on solute carriers), a public-private research partnership supported by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) with 13 partners from academia and industry, announced the start of a 5-year research project on July 1, 2018. The goal of the project is to intensify worldwide research on solute carriers (SLCs), a relatively understudied group of proteins that control essential physiological functions, and potentially establish them as a novel target class for medicine research and development.
Around 35 scientist - including PhD students, post-docs as well as Principle Investigators – from the RESOLUTE consortium met at CeMM in Vienna for a kick-off meeting to prepare the start of RESOLUTE. The main purpose of the meeting was to discuss the concrete work plans for the first 6 months of RESOLUTE, coordinate between the different work packages and establish communication lines and structures. Furthermore, the kick-off was the ideal setting for all scientists to get to know each other in person, which is an essential prerequisite for a successful future collaboration. The kick-off meeting was a great success and all participants are looking forward to the start of the RESOLUTE project.Read more
