To reach our aims and goals, we have established the following measures:
These are highly collaborative research projects aimed at improving our understanding of degenerative, inflammatory, and glio-vascular disease. The projects combine expertise across traditional pathomechanisms, as well as systems biology and systems neuroscience tools.
To promote early career researchers and train clinician-scientists in the methods and concepts of systems neurology, we offer attractive clinician-scientist packages that ensure full independence, while offering mentoring by senior scientists. We implemented a fast track towards board certification ("Facharzt") for these young neurologists.
We offer comprehensive training opportunities ranging from science exposure for high school pupils to promoting independence for post-docs. We collaborate with three well-established Ph.D. programs (GSN, IMPRS-LS, and TUM-Ph.D. program "Medical Life Science and Technology") to offer structured training. In addition, we established a "Systems Neurology Module" that will is integrated into the training programs of the collaborating schools. Finally, post-docs are given unique opportunities for early independence and international exchange.
Gender equality, family, and dual career support
We offer mentoring, financial help, and gender measures to improve the career prospects of female and parent-scientist within SyNergy. Moreover, comprehensive dual career support will be provided by both universities.
