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.
Precision medicine in inflammation medicine also defines the focus of our International Symposium “Inflammation Medicine – From Bench to Bedside” in 2020. In this symposium, the Cluster of Excellence “Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation” brings together a broad diversity of scientists in the field of inflammation research and precision medicine. In focused plenary sessions and parallel workshops, we want to discuss solutions in a series of scientific fields that have recently received attention through the progress made in inflammation medicine. The sessions will cover several aspects of precision medicine, ranging from high resolution imaging to genetics, from the microbiome as a target to prediction medicine.
Two parallel clinical sessions will focus on existing and novel therapeutic options in individualized medicine and are sponsored by Sanofi and Abbvie.
