Working Group 3: Clinical coordination

This WG will facilitate the best design of clinical and nutritional work, from model organisms to human. It will be made up of individuals from previous and existing zinc networks in order that the knowledge gained from these networks (including EURRECA, ZENITH, ZINCAGE, and BOND) can be used to inform and provide best practice guidelines for future research projects.
Specifically it will:

  • Host workshops and seminars aimed at harmonising experimental design, methodological approaches and techniques.
  • Testing the outputs of WGs 1 and 2.
  • Provide advice for design of new research studies (for example, for new collaborative grant applications).
  • Disseminate best practice through the VIZIBI web portal.

WG 3 Leader: Professor Arie Moran, Ben-Grion University of the Negev, Israel
