The HEALING project

Joint training and research on Hedgehog-Gli signalling and its pharmacological modulation for regenerative medicine



The HEALING project is a multilayered approach to develop knowledge on Hedgehog-Gli signalling and its therapeutic use.

An increasing number of European citizens suffer from debilitating chronic and degenerative diseases like faulty skin wound repair and Parkinson‘s (PD). (www.epda.eu.com)

The growing European biotech industry has shown an increasing interest in new scientific evidence which will allow them to develop new technologies and small molecules tackling degenerative diseases.


Hedgehog-Gli signalling is considered to be one of the most promising cellular communication pathways for regenerative medicine.
