30.11.2018: JRTG Retreat, Groningen
The binational, interdepartmental and interdisciplinary program aims to foster the integration of basic research, patient-oriented research, and population-based research with the long-term aim to improve health and patient outcome. PhD students work on a three year individual research project in the fields of psychiatry, oncology, immunology or genetics and receive a broad training with courses in molecular biology, statistics, epidemiology, neuroscience, academic writing and others.
Students are jointly supervised by one PI at the University Medical Center Groningen and one PI at the Faculty of Medicine in Oldenburg. They will receive a joint degree from both institutions. The first students started in early 2018. They conduct research in one of the following projects:
Project 5: “Identification and characterization of functional and plasmatic markers of microvascular dysfunction for the prediction of adverse outcome after major surgery – A translational approach” (Prof. Dr. Gregor Theilmeier/ Prof. Dr. Thomas W.L. Scheeren/ Dr. Matijs van Meurs)
Project 6: “Evaluation of biomarker for response to immune checkpoint Inhibitors in patients with advanced non-small cell lung in tissue and liquid biopsy” (Prof. Dr. Frank Griesinger/
