Research profile of the GRK 2336:
AVE - Resolution of Inflammation
Our graduate school (RTG/GRK) aims to train PhD students in the field of resolution of inflammation with a focus on the elucidation of basic mechanisms and their dysregulation in disease. By providing a structured training programme coupled with an ambitious, cutting edge scientific research project we hope to attract young scientists towards this emerging field of science. Our scientific consortium studies fundamental principles of resolution pathways and mechanisms of dysregulated resolution during acute and chronic inflammation. The elucidation of mechanisms involved possesses enormous potential for translational research and subsequent therapeutic development and is an ideal training ground for the next generation of young translational scientists. The educational program of the RTG will provide the necessary theoretical and methodological training to ensure an efficient and successful completion of each PhD thesis. This will be backed up by an individualized supervision and coaching program, as well as topic related seminars, practical courses and soft skill workshops.
