Why this profession?

Even before I started studying Human Medicine in 2009, I knew I didn’t want to work just in a hospital. I’ve always been interested in scientific work and an experimental doctoral thesis while still a student at the University of Lübeck is a great way for me to gain insight into scientific methods. This way I get the chance to look at what’s beyond becoming a doctor. I’m able to combine research work with my medical studies – like I might do once I’ve graduated.

Why RTG Genes, Environment and Inflammation?

To me as a medical student who has not yet been introduced to research work, it is important to get a broad understanding of scientific methods. Since the RTG is a platform for adept scientists, each highly qualified in their respective fields of research, I feel I’ll be expertly guided to pursue an academic career. Through this collaboration I hope I’ll be able to learn a lot not only about methods and technologies, but also about the interdisciplinary work and interaction in a research team like the RTG.
