Qualification Programme

The neuroscience community in Rostock benefits from experts of different fields of science that share knowledge about principles and rules of scientific work. In cooperation with the Graduate Academy of the University of Rostock and CTNR members, the qualification programme bundles this expertise and offers faculty-wide soft skill courses for young scientists. 

All courses are free of charge and open to all interested scientists.

Seminar: Methodology of Translational Research

Tuesdays, Oct 17 to Dec 5, 2023 - h 12:00 - 13:00 – online, Stud.IP (Registration)

By Prof. Dr. Marina Boccardi, Implementation Neuroscience, German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and UMR, CTNR

What - This lecture series provides some basic elements of methodology of research, with a special focus on biomedical research effectiveness in innovating clinical practice. Rather than being exhaustive on methodology, we target critical gaps that typically hurdle the translation and implementation of promising compounds or procedures. Attendees will learn how to avoid such gaps in their own research, or to assess the actual value and faults of papers promoting new findings, and to ask precise questions in order to obtain the target evidence required to concretely support and innovate their clinical practice.

Why – The attrition, i.e., the failure rate of current drug development at the first check-point (approval by regulators) ranges between 76-93% among medical fields [1]. The failure rate of biomarker qualification procedures alone, ever submitted to the European Medicine Agency (EMA) in any medical field, is 85% [2]. Most failures are due to early translational steps. Consequently, failure on the overall translational pipeline is even higher. To concretely improve patient care, we need greater awareness about proper research methodology at all development steps, by all parties (researchers, clinicians, publishers, funders).

How  – We offer a starting series made of few lessons, meant to be highly interactive in order to build this course based on actual needs. In this way, we can understand what is most useful to the audience, what is most difficult or unclear, and how to improve or what to integrate for a next series.

Where – online (see Zoom Links)

When – On Tuesdays, h 12:00 - 13:00, from October 17, 2023.

Lectures of Excellence

The "Lectures of Excellence: Pioneers in Neurosciences" is an annual event that invites excellent scientists of significant discoveries in the field of neuroscience to provide insights into their research. These include, above all, Nobel Prize winners, Leibniz Prize winners or winners of other excellent awards.

The lectures are addressed to scientists, physicians and junior scientists working in the field of neuroscience. By presenting their own experiences, excellent lecturers will awake the interest for innovative solutions and alternative ways of thinking. The audience will get in close contact with interesting personalities and their groundbreaking research.

Organiser of the Lecture Serie is the Centre for Transdisciplinary Neurosciences Rostock.
