On 8th October 2020 the Tolić group from Ruđer Bošković Institute hosted a kick-off meeting to bring together representatives of the PI teams under the ERC Synergy project “Molecular origins of aneuploidies in healthy and diseased human tissues (Aneuploidy)”. The meeting organized in hybrid form aimed at facilitating the collaboration and knowledge sharing among PI teams and creating synergies for effective project implementation and coordinated results.
