We have participated in numerus studies related to complex disease, therefore, biobank contains population based and disease specific cohorts that include endocrinology (diabetes, Graves, pituitary adenoma), neurology, oncology, gastroenterology and coronary and heart disease patient samples. The health and heredity information including lifestyle, sociodemographic data, medicine use and other information. We have experience in linking with national health registries and data from state funded medical health care and medication can be obtained, also specific registry data from diabetes, oncology, rare disease and other registries. We have experience in development of diagnostic tests that includes NGS use in MODY, hyperholisterinemia, pituitary adenoma, phamacogenetics and common disease testing with involvement of state medical system and performance of clinical trials. For us it would be interesting to join the project that would deal with studies of biological samples and registry data in relation to specific disease or public health problems. We have also equipment and experience in “omics” studies (microbiome, exome, transcriptome, genome), molecular biology, genetics, cell functional studies and liquid biopsies and experience in related bioinformatics data analysis.

Jelgavas 1, LV-1004, Riga,  Latvia
  Research interests:

Currently the group is working to find out mechanisms which are involved in formation of auxotrophic starvation specific phenotype in the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.
Purine nucleotide auxotrophy is typical trait of many eukaryotic parasitic organisms. Nucleotide  metabolism is target for several immunosuppressant therapies,  and is also foreseen as potent target for eukaryotic parasite control. Budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae is excellent eukaryotic cell model organism and powerful tool for drug screening.
Understanding mechanism of yeast cell reaction to nucleotide auxotrophy would facilitate yeast application in specific drug screens, developing strategies for control of biotechnological relevant auxotrophic strains, etc. 

We have hands on expertise in following methods:
- microbial cultivation (from microcultivation in 96 well plates to laboratory scale fermenters of several litres);
- yeast protein tagging and immunofluorescence;
- yeast stress tolerance assays (oxidative, weak acid and heat stress,  desiccation tolerance);
- enzymatic assays (photometric, fluorometric or luminescent detection);
- qPCR.

  Research interests: The principal interest of the project could be in pituitary tumor research. Our research group performs studies related to pituitary adenoma genetic predisposition, potential non-invasive monitoring and genetic and functional characterization of tumor material. We have established collection of pituitary patients’ biomaterials: tumors (over 80) used for DNA, RNA extraction and primary cell line development, and blood samples (over 220) used for plasma, sera and DNA isolation. These samples include various pituitary adenoma subtypes - growth hormone, adrenocorticotropic hormone, prolactin secreting and non-secreting pituitary adenomas. We also have collection of associated clinical data. Currently, we explore, somatic mutation detection in tumor derived DNA, cell free DNA and microRNA identification in patients’ plasma and tumor cell sorting and characterization. These research directions could be pursued in proposed project, however, we are open for propositions in other areas like pituitary adenoma research in mice models or drug effectivity studies. We have access to wide range of research infrastructure at Latvian Biomedical Research and Study centre: (1) Genome Centre (2) Cell culture and microscopy facility (3) Animal core facility, (4) IT and bioinformatics unit.

  Research interests: Migration in general, ageing and migration, medical tourism, exchange of experience of making, leading migration research centres and cooperation with stakeholders at national and international levels.

Summary of research proposal:
This collaborative research project proposal has interests about return migration in later life as well as medical tourism in the context of ageing society. Nevertheless research topic can be changed in the future discussion according to the interests of the all 3 partners. Further in this document is the ideas about the research proposal as Latvian and Lithuanian research centres have discussed it.
So far the title of the research could be: Ageing and migration: maximizing opportunities for healthy later life. Comparative studies in Latvia, Lithuania and Taiwan.
All the countries are approaching the fact of ageing society. Also, ageing and migration has become one of the most topical issues in recent migration research worldwide. Our approach is based in well-being concept and understanding of people’s own needs during return migration or home visits in later life.
Moreover, such approach would provide detailed bottom-up understanding for practical policies, which need to incorporate viable solutions for those, who want to return home and have specific needs due to ageing. In the meantime, those diaspora members who do not want or cannot relocate to homeland permanently but use medical and recreational services back home time to time, would reveal so far under researched in little understood ways of cooperation between state, service providers and diaspora members themselves.

  Research interests:

Big portion of the human-to-human communication goes through non-verbal communication, i.e., hand gesticulation, facial expression and etc. The novel communication devices and robots should perceive and understand not only verbal or clearly discriminated commands, but also non-verbal signals w hich are more natural for humans. Such novel devices should use actuating force such as gesture, facial expresions, the eye gaze. During last decade the interest in such assistive or associative technology devices, so called gaze tracking systems and non-verbal (based- on gestures) communication, have been rapidly grow ing. This communication system w orks using video camera that captures fast motions of user eye, facial expressions and hand gestures. The object tracking systems recognizes specific motion of the user and associates the commands to the external device or/and to the applications on the computer.

Cooperation project w ill cover the research on the novel non- verbal communication type used for remote robot control and
„eye-to-eye“ communication w ith a robot.

Our laboratory - Cancer Biomarker group, lead by Dr. Aija Line – for the last years has been extensively w orking on autoantibody profiling in cancer patients‘ sera in order to identify biomarkers for early cancer detection, prognosis and prediction of response to therapy. W e have succeeded w ith the identification of 45- autoantibody biomarker panel that could discriminate early stage gastric cancer from healthy donors w ith 90% specificity and 59% sensitivity (see Zayakin et al, 2013, Int J Cancer), and currently additional biomarker identification is ongoing in order to increase the diagnostic performance of the test panel.

W e are seeking for collaboration partners (clinicians) to w hom a collection of w ell-annotated pre-treatment serum samples are available or feasible to collect during the next year in order to validate the diagnostic performance of the autoantibody biomarkers in Taiw anese and Lithuanian population in a retrospective case-control study. Serum samples from patients w ith gastric cancer (all stages) and healthy controls w ould be of interest.
