New Clinician Scientists: Dr. Johanna Knöferle & Dr. Jonas Franz

Clinician Scientists (3)

As part of our Clinician Scientist Programme, we are proud to welcome and support Dr. Johanna Knöferle and Dr. Jonas Franz as our first successful applicants to our TRR274. The Clinician Scientist Programme of the TRR274 is set to sponsor and encourage young medical professionals, who foster a deep interest and drive to participate in the scientific field and do science, to do so in parallel to their medical training. Specifically, clinicians have the opportunity to receive financial aid, protected research time and one on one scientific mentoring from one of our TRR274 PIs.

Dr. Johanna Knöferle is a resident clinician in the Department of Neurology at Klinikum rechts der Isar in Munich and will work under supervision of Prof. Mikael Simons, while Dr. Jonas Franz works as a resident at the Institute of Neuropathology at the University Medical Center Göttingen and will be mentored and supervised by Prof. Stadelmann.
