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
- 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.
a team of young and innovative scientists who are experts in the fields of:
- molecular biology
- human genetics
The purpose of the structured doctoral student programme is to:
- enable young scientists to obtain their doctoral degree within three years;
- qualify doctoral students for postdoctoral work;
- impart interdisciplinary knowledge;
- promote postgraduate students' transferrable skills.
Together with his colleagues Joana P. Bernardes and Archana Bhardwaj from the Systems Immunology Group of the Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB) Florian Tran, a former doctoral researcher in Medicine at the RTG 1743, is currently developing novel analysis methods for IBD tissues. The scientists got the funding (50,000 €) for this project from a mini proposal grant they received from the Cluster of Excellence Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation.
On 2 November, 2021 Florian Tran explained their approach in a television report on the TV channel NDR, comparing the novel analysis with football stadiums.
