The curAEducate program complements classical, highly specialized study programs of a University by teaching (future-oriented) intersectoral and translational research approaches that are geared towards applicable clinical solutions and tailored to the needs of patients.

We therefore offer a comprehensive training network that provides qualification opportunities for professionals with various backgrounds. This targeted support promotes interface competencies that significantly expand the potential of cluster members and helps to discuss and solve complex issues within the cluster in the best possible way. In this way, we want to create excellent future prospects for young talents.

Additional certification for students

Are you a Master's student in biology, (bio)medicine, biomedical chemistry or (bio)informatics and are you still planning the research for your Master's thesis?

Then register for our course "Translational Immunology and Vascular Medicine in the Digital Transformation". At the end of the course, you will receive an additional certificate that certifies the expertise you need to successfully complete a translational Master's thesis.

The virtual course takes place in the summer or winter semester and includes lectures (4 SWS), practical exercises (16 SWS), student seminars (2 SWS) and seminars with external speakers (2 SWS).

The topics of the courses are the following:

  • Translational medicine and immunology (research methodology, study design, value chain)

  • Vascular physiology/immunology/ pharmacology

  • Vascular signalling mechanisms, pathophysiology and epidemiology of vascular diseases

  • Systems medicine

  • Applied bioinformatics, biostatistics

  • Data Science and AI in (Bio-)Medicine, Data Management, Regulatory Processes and Intellectual Property Rights

Handbook „Data Science and AI in (Bio)medicine“

The curATime scientists will provide an interdisciplinary handbook about the content of the Additional Certificate courses, which is aimed at Master’s students and interested doctoral students and postdocs. In the handbook, applications at the interface of AI medicine/bioscience are explained using case studies. This handbook addresses the existing gap between the disciplines in an exemplary and user-oriented way and illustrates the medical/scientific perspective in data analyses.

Young Scientist Academy

An important part of the academy are the interdisciplinary learning groups formed by the young scientists themselves, which are intended to create a place for informal exchange. For technical curATime staff, an online lunch seminar series in German is organized within the Young Scientists Academy, in which the latest developments in atherothrombosis research, methodologically interesting publications and newly established technologies and methods at the partner sites are presented.

Within the curATime Young Scientists Academy, science managers benefit above all from the exchange within the training network; the Science Managers Conference organized by curATime, for example, enables them to address common challenges and develop approaches to solutions.

Scientific exchange platform

Researchers from different disciplines and levels of experience are working together to create a valuable knowledge transfer inside our cluster. Staff members are therefore given the opportunity to get to know other areas or sectors; e.g. within collaborative projects. In most cases, junior researchers will take over teaching in order to build up mutual competences.

In addition, exchanges for Master's students, research trips for (medical) doctoral students and postdocs as well as laboratory visits for technical staff are made possible. For any questions you are welcome to contact Dr. Cathrin Nourse: [javascript protected email address]
