Z4: Integrated Research Training Group School of Angioscience

Jörg Heineke

The promotion of young researchers is a central goal of the CRC1366. Therefore, the Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) School of Angioscience is set up to provide training, mentoring and super­vision for PhD and MD research students on three levels: (1) within the participating research groups, (2) within existing roof graduate schools (e.g. HBIGS in Heidelberg/Mannheim), and (3) within the angio­science curriculum of the CRC1366. In this curriculum, a combination of decentral practical and theoreti­cal courses (“Student Retreats”), summer schools and a seminar series are implemented. Completion of the program is complementing training by the hosting roof graduate school and is providing young researchers with CRC1366-specific scientific skills and competence as well as laboratory management and communication skills that will ensure individual success and long-term advancement of angioscience research. Moreover, beyond the formal training aspect, the ITRG is a hub for the junior scientists in the CRC1366 to serve the important purpose of networking and interacting to there­by foster an atmosphere that is conducive for the strong collaborative spirit within the CRC1366.
