The Research Training Group (RTG) 2824 “Heart and brain diseases: integrative research across organs”, based at the University Medical Center Göttingen, is funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) from April 2023 to March 2028. The RTG 2824 aims to expand the cross-organ approach through high-end integrative research in the field of heart and brain diseases combined with top-notch training of medical doctorate and PhD students.
Scientists from the cardiovascular and neuroscience sections of the University Medical Center Göttingen and the German Primate Center work in close collaboration and offer medical students as well as PhD candidates the opportunity to perform interdisciplinary research involving the heart and brain, while simultaneously receiving disciplinary and interdisciplinary training through the qualification program. The RTG will offer doctoral students research opportunities on common mechanisms of Research Training Group 2824 cardiomyocytes and neurons as well as the heart – brain axis. The projects are designed to increase basic knowledge and tackle clinically relevant questions. The scheme depicts the research projects (RP, inner circle), research topics (middle circle) and associated clinical studies/iPSC cohort (outer circle) organized within the RTG 2824. Overarching research topics and clinical studies are shown in relation to the respective RP. Connecting lines between the RP represent the ongoing and planned collaborations. The color gradient represents basic (red) to translational (blue) research projects.
SAVE THE DATE: 09.10.-10.10.2023 - RTG 2824 “Heart & Brain Symposium” & CVS PhD Retreat 2023
It’s a great pleasure to invite you to our semi-daily 1st RTG 2824 “Heart & Brain Symposium” & CVS PhD Retreat 2023 taking place from 9th until 10th October 2023 in Göttingen. On the first day we are very happy that we can meet you in our new Heart & Brain Center Göttingen (HBCG) close to the University Medical Center Göttingen. On the second day we will move the event to the Alte Mensa, University of Göttingen.
With this meeting the first PhD students and associated PhD students of the RTG 2824 "Heart & Brain” will present their previous work by their talks and the CVS PhD students will guide us through an interesting poster session. The spectrum of the research projects ranges from basic to translational research topics about the interaction of Heart and Brain and cardiovascular and neurological disorders.
The Podcast for PhD students in the natural sciences in Göttingen
In our podcast PhD2go we talk about the advantages of doing a PhD in Göttingen, the beautiful sides of the city, the university and the university hospital.
We inform you about the not-so-easy structures and the different stages of PhD life. Have fun!
