Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships are European research grants available to researchers regardless of their nationality and field of research. In addition to generous fellowships, researchers have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers. Coralie Chanvillard is an early stage researcher undertaking a PhD in Berlin, under the Innovative Training Network Grant of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme. This grant gave her the opportunity to gain plenty of scientific experience and to do part of her research in other European Union Member States. She is researching her PhD in Immunology in Berlin at the Hospital Charité. Her research is on multiple sclerosis.
"I am an early stage researcher under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. My research project is part of a wider network of universities, hospitals, and private countries spread over four European Union Member States and Russia. [...] I really feel that this training and network helped me to develop many new skills and that I will have a nice career development thanks to this." Coralie Chanvillard, doctoral MSCA fellow
