Projects starting 2014:

Three to five young scientists, whose doctoral degrees  are not more than five years old, work together on the project for a period of up to three years in the nine “Junior systems medicine research alliances” funded within the framework of e:Med. At least one member comes from the areas of biomedicine, clinics and mathematics/information technology respectively. In system-oriented research approaches, young researchers work on interdisciplinary medical issues relating to different types of cancer, chronic kidney disease or intestinal inflammation as well as metabolic or connective tissue diseases.

Eight “Junior systems medicine research alliances” have already taken this approach with great success since 2014. They were funded by the BMBF with a total of 16 million EUR.
