Two Clinician Scientists supported by SFB 914
Starting in January 2017, the two clinician scientists Dr. Claudia Nußbaum and Dr. Christopher Stremmel receive funding to partially relieve them from their clinical patient-care duties in order to promote their scientific careers within SFB 914.
Claudia Nußbaum currently works as Funktionsoberärztin in the department of Neonatology of the Dr. von Hauner Childrens' Hospital (Director Christoph Klein, project A08). She will use the time in the laboratory of Markus Sperandio (project B01) to further advance her project on the role of Jagunal homolog 1 during the recruitment of neutrophil granulocytes.
Christopher Stremmel holds a position as Assistenzarzt in the Department of Internal Medicine I - Cardiology (Director Steffen Massberg, projects B02 and Z01). He will study the molecular migration mechanisms of yolk sac-derived macrophages together with Christian Schulz (project A10).
Concept of Clinician Scientists
Funds for Clinician Scientists are granted by the funding agency DFG to support highly qualified young clinicians during the early phases of their scientific careers. The funding covers the temporary relief from patient-care responsibilities in order to participate in the SFB project.
The positions are filled upon application to and approval by the executive board of SFB 914.
