The Environmental Health and Lung Research School brings together highly motivated young scientists from different countries. They not only acquire theoretical knowledge, but also methodological expertise, strategies in research management or team skills in academic medicine.
Here the students will find a training and education platform with perfect supervision and excellent facilities. In this way, they will develop into leading scientists and researchers who will broaden our understanding of lung diseases and their treatment. The young researchers benefit from the partners of the program, Helmholtz Zentrum München – German Research Center for Environmental Health and Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität as well as the university hospital system. Together they all form an excellent and inspiring environment for translational research. Their results are intended to improve the treatment and quality of life of patients with lung diseases.
Tje students not only learn the basics of lung biology and physiology, but also basic biomedical methods and technologies. They also practice how to present their research projects competently or how to write professional proposals, abstracts or papers. They are also offered exchange programs, conference visits or "Meet-the-Professor" seminars.
