Lab Rotations

Members of the TRR274 can organize lab visits to laboratories within and outside of the consortium to exchange knowledge, teach practical skills and increase collaborative efforts.

All young investigators in the need of learning a new skill, method or technique in the context of advancing their projects or scientific career are eligible to participate in our lab rotations. The lab rotations are organized upon approval of the application. Dates, duration and method of teaching are planned individually.

To facilitate connecting researchers to the appropriate experts within our consortium, we have compiled a list of Competence Centers here:

Lecture Series

The TRR274 offers the lecture series “Checkpoints of Central Nervous System Recovery”, which is integrated into the graduate school curriculum of the universities at each TRR274 – site (i.e. Graduate School of Systemic Neurosciences (GSN), PhD program “Medical life science and technology” of the TUM and the Göttingen Graduate Center for Neurosciences, Biophysics, and Molecular Biosciences (GGNB)).

Each semester our senior TRR274 members will present and teach about the state of the art knowledge and research on the topic of CNS regeneration. The CNS is a terminally differentiated tissue, where any insult carries a heightened risk – yet the tissue response to these insults is variable and can range from irreversible destruction to almost complete recovery. The rules that instruct these divergent outcomes are still unknown. The topic of this lecture series is the biology of the multicellular response that determines recovery after CNS injury. We will focus on the multi-scale, spatio-temporal cell biology in different models of CNS injury. The participants will not only be introduced to principles of CNS recovery, but also the new imaging technology that is necessary to study the biology. Another focus will be put on neuronal, glial and immunological aspects of CNS recovery/damage.

The lecture series consists of 8 lectures during the winter semester, on Tuesdays from 17:00 – 18:30. The lectures are given over zoom in order to include people from all sites.

Anyone who is interested is welcome to join. Participants must register with the coordination office prior to attendance. Login details and course material will be provided upon registration.
