Goals

 

The Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) “Cardiovascular complications in CKD” will create an interdisciplinary training program to guide the PhD students within the TRR219 to become the next generation of innovative, independent and translational cross-disciplinary researchers exploiting multiple facets of CVD in CKD. This comprehensive training program covers salient aspects of the pathophysiological mechanisms triggering CVD in CKD and will achieve full participation and integration of all PhD students in early career stages.

 

The program is personalized to the individual needs of the particular PhD student. Of note, the IRTG is embedded into the existing excellently structured PhD training program in Aachen and Homburg, respectively as well as international graduate schools. We will provide each PhD student

with the needed cross-disciplinary as well as complementary soft skills to perform efficiently in the

highly demanding translational research field. Further, the IRTG serves as a network base for the TRR219 to efficiently connect the topics, technology and methods between Aachen and Homburg.

Peer-to-Peer mentoring

 

We established a peer-to-peer (P2P) mentoring program for MD and PhD students. It facilitates communication and integration of MD and PhD doctoral candidates with diverse background and the common interest in cardiorenal research. Additionally it nourish a common spirit within the graduate school. The P2P program is self-organized from and only for MD/PhD students. 
MD/PhD students created an open minded community to discuss different topic in an intimate atmosphere without any supervisor. The P2P has a strong networking value also for newly joining MD and PhD students
