Cardiorenal Summer School
August 23-25 2018
The first network-wide Summer School of the SFB/TRR219 graduate school together with the international graduate schools EURLIPIDS and Marie Curie ITNs INTRICARE and CaReSyAn was held in August 2018 in the conference hotel in Jugenheim-Seeheim.
The scientific workshops within the summer school updated the MD/PhD students and young postdocs in novel discoveries related to the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of the cardiovascular complications in chronic kidney disease. Furthermore, we focused on qualification in basic scientific competences and personal development. Besides the interesting scientific presentations and the insights into industrial research, we held a poster session and pitch-and-peer session. The best poster presentation was awarded to Burcu Yesilyurt (PhD candidate) supervised by Dr. Peter Boor. The awards for the best scientific pitch went to the PhD candidates Marina Heuschkel, supervised by Dr. Claudia Goettsch and Andrea Buescher, supervised by Prof. Dr. Wilhelm Jahnen-Dechent. Congratulation to the award winners!
