Kiel Nano, Surface and Interface Science (KiNSIS)

Second PhD-generation of the RTG 2154 has started

Apr 29, 2020

Screenshot Kick offOn April 1, 2020, a new group of doctoral students started within the research training group (RTG) "Materials for Brain". 12 PhD students from materials science and (bio)medicine will continue the RTG's research on nano- and micro-scale coatings for implants in their projects. The aim is to use them for the treatment of brain diseases such as epilepsy, aneurysms and tumors, thus opening up perspectives for novel therapies. Research is focusing on the material-controlled drug release, implant interactions as well as suitability of the implants for diagnostics with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Due to the current corona restrictions, the kick-off meeting on April 21 took place virtually via video conference, including a group photo. Rainer Adelung, the new spokesperson of the RTG since April 1, welcomed them together with the other professors and coordinator Tina Kerby. The RTG team introduced itself and the training programme in detail and answered current questions of the participants. They reported on their respective plans and their current (working) situation. The new doctoral students of the international training programme come from Turkey, Spain, Pakistan, India and Germany. Due to the reduced travel possibilities, some of them are currently still in their home countries and hope to come to Kiel during the summer semester to continue their research on site. The majority of the PhD students from the first generation, who started in 2017, will finish their PhD this year.
