4th Consortium meeting for the EUMASCARA project at Milan Italy
The 4th Consortium meeting took place on the 17th November 2014 in Milan. The meeting was hosted by AUX and was attended by almost all of the consortium partners.

The meeting focused on reviewing the research work within the different WPs from M24 to M36. The volume of the data presented raised the key issues of:
• Combination of the data and identification of associations between the different -omics especially as they come from different sources (blood, urine etc.).
• The effective management of the data due to their very large number and the time constrains of the project. Plans involving the identification of the most promising markers in regards of prognosis, cost effectiveness and ease of transfer to the clinic were devised.
• Maximizing the exploitation of the SME partners’ infrastructure and potentials by the consortium in running costly tests on cohorts’ samples and setting the foundation for the final product development.
