The scientific coordinator of the CTNR, Virginia Bolowski, initiated successfully the first workshop about the DFG research grant (Sachbeihilfe). The workshop was about the content, structure and submission process of a research grant at the German Research Foundation.

26 participants of various institutes of the University Medical Centre got the possibility to get in touch with this funding instrument by doing practical exercises and interacting with each other.

The workshop is part of the CTNR qualification program to strengthen grant efforts within the University Medical Centre Rostock.

Albrecht-Kossel-Section for Translational Neurodegeneration

The Albrecht-Kossel-Section for Translational Neurodegeneration at the Department of Neurology will be newly founded on the 01.01.2019 and is investigating the mechanisms of physiological and pathological aging as well as the pathophysiology of neurodegeneration. Aiming for the translation of innovative therapies into the clinical neurology, the main focus of the group is the application of human cell models of pathological aging (progeria infantilis and adultorum, down-syndrome), of adult neurodegeneration (ALS/FTD) and of juvenile neurodegeneration (chorea-acanthocytosis, Niemann pick type C, NCL). We want to combine the strategies of reducing pathological aging on the one side and the specific therapy of neurodegeneration on the other side.

New Section Leader:
Prof. Dr. Dr. A. Hermann

Available positions at the AKOS.

Clinician Scientist Program at the University Medicine Rostock

To improve the recruiting of young medical scientific researchers and to support their specific challenges concerning compatibility of research and clinical work, the University Medicine Rostock (UMR) established an overall clinician scientist program ("Strukturprogramm Clinician Scientist").

In order to create efficient incentives for an academic/research career besides medical training, 15 positions for an advanced training in a clinical specialty/subspecialty (ärztliche Weiterbildungsstellen) are advertised.

The key element of the program is the research protected time of two years within the specialist/subspecialist training time to conduct a theoretical research project. The program consits of an individual clinical, scientific and soft skill educational curriculum and is structured into a Junior and an Advanced Clinician Scientist Program.

The positions are available now: job advertisement.
