6th Call for Short-Term Scientific Missions

COST Action BM1402: Development of a European network for preclinical testing of interventions in mouse models of age and age-related diseases (MouseAGE) invites researchers from Participating COST Countries to submit applications for the 6th call for STSM. 

Purpose of a STSM
STSM are aimed at strengthening existing networks and fostering collaborations by allowing researchers participating in a given COST Action to visit an institution or laboratory in another Participating COST Country / an approved Near Neighbour Country institution or an approved International Partner Country institution. A STSM should specifically contribute to the overall scientific objectives of the COST Action, whilst at the same time enable researchers to learn new techniques or gain access to specific expertise, instruments and/or methods not available in their own institutions. 


We welcome applications that are aligned with MouseAGE’s current scientific priorities which include:

  • frailty assessment in mice
  • identification of biomarkers for ageing (and specifically frailty)
  • assessment 
  • ...Read more
