How our network benefits to society
We train the next generation of researchers
Improving the health of patients through translational research is not our only goal. We also bring together researchers from both sides of the Northern Dutch-German cross-border region and train the next generation of researchers together through a PhD traject.
Training and supervision for PhD students
Our PhD programme within the Joint Graduate Research Training Group (JGRTG) is binational, interdepartmental and interdisciplinary. Each PhD student receives supervision from a team of different researchers with the goal to receive a joint doctorate degree from both Groningen and Oldenburg. Besides that, we provide a broad training for our PhD students with courses in molecular biology, statistics, epidemiology, neuroscience, academic writing and others.
