Clinician Scientists

Our Clinician Scientists Programme

A strongly patient-oriented research on adrenal disorders provides the fundamental basis for successful translational investigations. These take advantage of clinical knowledge and patient-derived materials (bio-samples) for bench level studies. Their goal is to explore disease mechanisms and identify novel biomarkers and targets for treatment.

The CRC/TRR 205 has an important venue for establishing and promoting the career of clinician scientists, a group that is in danger of declining due to the increasing time demands of clinical duties. Within the CRC/TRR 205 funding period the supported clinician scientists are guaranteed a period of time in which they can exclusively focus on their research. They are required to have skills for clinical, translational and basic research.

By introducing an interdisciplinary team of scientists with experience and expertise in basic, translational and clinical research, the CRC/TRR 205 provides a fully supportive training environment for early-career clinician scientists. Furthermore it actively promotes career development.

Our Clinician Scientists also take advantage of the DSCS offerings. The SFB/TRR 205 is involved in this program.
