Research Training Group

genes, environment, inflammation

Within this Research Training Group we will study the environmental influences responsible for the development of complex, chronic diseases. Moreover, we will systematically examine the previously understudied interplay between the (micro)-environment and predisposing genetic factors...

The scientists in the Research Training Group (RTG) want to find out

more on our research

  • how the non-genetical schemes in the cell change during the development of chronic inflammatory diseases;
  • how diet influences the development of inflammatory diseases;
  • new statistical and bioinformatical ways to express research results.

Frontiers in Microbiome Research - 15-18 August, 2021 in Denmark

At Frontiers in Microbiome Research, we are aiming at training promising PhD candidates via a highly integrative, interdisciplinary approach. Approximately 50 young researchers will convene to discuss and network with fellow students as well as high-ranking, established senior scientists in different fields of microbiome research in relation to metabolic and inflammatory diseases. Lectures as well as workshops, poster sessions and networking activities make up the programme of the course. We are optimistic that, of course, with a special hygiene concept, we will be able to proceed the summer school in presence.

Frontiers in Microbiome Research is jointly organised by Kiel University (Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel, CAU) with the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” (PMI) and the Research Unit miTarget, the University of Copenhagen (UCPH), and the Danish Diabetes Academy (DDA). The RTG 1743 is part of the organization team.
