The Thematic Network "Research for Rare Diseases and Personalised Medicine" offers fellowships every year at current Research Projects at each one of the partner institutions!
The fellowship application process has been interrupted due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic until further notice!
Junior Scientists (Medical Students, PhD Students and Residents in Pediatrics) can apply for research fellowships in our partner institutions:
Medellin for 1 month.
Here is a list of the Groups working on biology and related Topics and their Research Topics at our Center:
1. Immunology: Immunological response to viruses. Research focused on immune response and natural resistance to viral infections, cellular and molecular biology of viruses, immunomodulation and antiviral therapies, epidemiology and evolution of viral diseases.
2. Tropical diseases: Ecoepidemiology, clinical trials, entomology, malacology (heltmints)
3. Neurosciences: Research on Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, Huntington, hereditary Dementia and other neurological disorders
4. Gastrohepatolocy: Viral infections, cancer
5. Cellular immunology and immunogenetics: Transplants, Tuberculosis, Autoimmunity
6. Infectious diseases in general
Senior Scientists and Staff can apply for research fellowships in partner institutions:

About "Mobility & Exchange":
In order to stengthen the already existing collaborations in the field of rare diseases and to make sure that these will withstand the test of time, the support of excellent young researchers and future top executives is vital. Young doctors and researchers must become aware of rare diseases so as to be able to dedicate their time and efforts to researching them. Due to the DAAD-network “Research for Rare Diseases and Personalised Medicine”, every year academic visits lasting for several months to paediatric centres in our partner countries will be made possible. Every year, for two to six months, a young scientist from Bangkok, Boston, Isfahan, Kayseri, Tel Aviv, Medellín and Toronto will be able to research for rare diseases in Munich and a young scientist from Munich will be able to resarch for rare diseases at our partner institutions.
