Further training opportunities and personal support

Promoting women is one of the main goals of the Cluster of Excellence “Inflammation at Interfaces”. Increasing the proportion of women in leading and strategically important positions will be specifically targeted. Some measures to support women are already in place for young scientists. In 2012, the Cluster initiated the Dorothea Erxleben Programme, which comprises various support measures such as mentoring or the role model system.

There are also measures within the Cluster which specifically support the ability to combine scientific and clinical activities. In addition to trainee medical specialists, the Cluster also supports senior physicians in particular. They should be able to continue to practice a successful combination of research and clinical activity. A clinician scientist is a very promising approach for the future research orientation of the Cluster, because these experts work at the interface between basic research and clinical activities, and are therefore directly involved in translating research results into patient care.

The list below provides an overview of the individual support measures by the Cluster of Excellence (further details are linked to each of the terms):
