Project Description

TP19: Integrated Research Training Group “Immunovirology”

Deciphering the determinants and dynamics of hepatitis virus persistence versus control of infection requires a highly interdisciplinary approach encompassing virology, immunology, cell biology, systems biology, bioimaging and clinical hepatology. To meet these demands, talented and specifically trained students and young scientists are of decisive importance. Therefore, we propose the Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) Immunovirology for PhD as well as MD students as an important component for the sustainable success of TRR179. The IRTG will offer special training courses, soft skill seminars and scientific education that include interactive lecture series, laboratory exchanges and annual retreats.
