Graduate Students

About the graduent students:

We consider neither the scientific nor the translational potential towards ‘resolution of inflammation’ to be sufficiently exploited. Therefore, young researchers need to be specifically educated in this field. This will enable them to explore mediators and principles of resolution of inflammation in academia, the clinics, and pharmaceutical industry. To this end, graduates in biology, biochemistry, immunology, pharmacology, pharmacy, and molecular medicine have been recruited to AVE through a rigid evaluation process. Together with associated PhD candidates and medical students, they will tackle the questions raised within the three scientific clusters of AVE.
