New ITN addresses the studies of pathological processes in cardiovascular diseases

Mainz, August 22, 2018 – The Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) at the University Medical Center Mainz is host to a new Innovative Training Network (ITN) „TICARDIO – Thrombo-Inflammation in Cardiovascular Disease“. It will address the studies of pathological processes in cardiovascular diseases. The ITN offers 15 science graduate students the opportunity to develop scientific and general skills within a cross-border network. The structured international, interdisciplinary, and intersectoral research and training program will take place from 2019 at Mainz, Maastricht, Marseille, and Dortmund. The European Commission is providing 4 million euros to ITN under the Marie Skłodowska Curie Action (MSCA) for 48 months through its Horizon 2020 Framework Program for Research and Innovation. As part of the doctoral training program, TRON participates as an external institution in which the doctoral students can gain non-academic experience.
