On Januray 1, 2009, a new project titled "Quantitative pathway analysis of natural variation in complex disease signaling in C. elegans" (PANACEA) was granted, funded by the European Union, FP7, Health.

Within PANACEA we will use C. elegans to address the following two key questions:

  1. how the genetic background affects complex disease signaling pathways
  2. whether we can predict the effect of the genetic background on these pathways.
