Promotion of Young Scientists

Career support for young scientists

Successful translational research requires interdisciplinary and well-networked researchers who focus on the development of new therapies and preventive measures.

The central goals of our working group are:

- imparting specialist knowledge

- gaining competence for translational research

- establishment of a professional, interdisciplinary and cross-indication network

In cross-center events, young scientists and researching physicians expand both their network and their knowledge of translational research.

The working group presents career opportunities in the DZG at conferences: Annual GAIN Conference.
