Our group is part of a consortium that is funded by the European Union for a joint project on transcriptional regulation in inflammatory response. The title of the project is MODEL-IN, and you can learn more about it in its website.
As part of the project, we hold meetings roughly every six months. This is a great way to catch up on the progress in each group and also to get better working relationships. Most of the meetings were in the UK, and one was in Rome. This time the meeting was organized in Israel, which was a great opportunity to get project members to see Jerusalem.
We spent two intensive days in meetings going over scientific results.
On the afternoon of the second day we went for a tour around Jerusalem. This was a beautiful spring day (spring started early this year) and we got nice views of the old city and its interior.
