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...

more on our vision


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.


a team of young and innovative scientists who are experts in the fields of:

Else Kröner Memorial Fellowship for Florian Tran

Dr. Florian Tran, © Fabian Lippke, Uni Kiel

Florian Tran, Department of Internal Medicine I, UKSH, Campus Kiel, and Institute of Clinical Molecular Biology (IKMB), Kiel, receives an Else Kröner Memorial Fellowship. The scholarship is endowed with 230,000 euros and releases him from clinical duties for two years for his research project. He is currently working as Clinician Scientist of the Cluster of Excellence Precision Medicine in Chronic Inflammation. Dr. Tran has been member of the RTG 1743 since 2013. After having finished his doctorate he was involved in the co-supervision of several medical doctoral researchers. In the project related to the Else Körner Memorial Fellowship, he will utilize modern sequencing technologies to detect complex molecular signatures with spatial resolution (spatial multi-omics) in intestinal biopsy samples from ulcerative colitis patients receiving biological therapy. The aim is to identify molecular predictors for long-term remission.
