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.

Clearly explained - Spatial Multi-Omics Phenotyping of Intestinal Tissue in Ulcerative Colitis

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.
