The Research Training Group "Mechanisms of Immune-Mediated Tissue Injury" offers students a structured training program to improve both scientific and interdisciplinary competences.
In addition, the students will set up an individual coaching/mentoring committee to support the progress of the project by providing feedback and suggestions.
The following events are part of the Research Training Group:
The graduates meet regularly to present and discuss a key publication from their respective field of work. This way, the students learn to critically deal with scientific publications.
Lab meetings and guest lectures
The graduate students participate in the weekly lab meeting of the SFB 1192. In this meetings the current SFB projects and project progress are presented and discussed. In addition, regular external guest speakers are invited.
Seminars and courses
In different seminars and courses the students will gain further knowledge in the scientific work areas. These include, for example, the methodology seminar, where the most common methods in immunological research are presented, courses for dealing with research animals or statistics courses.
At the end of the academic year, there will be a joint retreat with the graduate students to present the current progress of the projects.
