Oxford-Berlin School on Molecular Basis of Inflammatory Diseases


The Oxford-Berlin School on Molecular Basis of Inflammatory Diseases, organised by scientists in Oxford and Berlin, aims to allow researchers from all over the world to jointly explore the mechanisms underpinning some particular diseases that affect many people across the globe. The program aims to benefit early and mid-career researchers, with applications welcomed from Master students, Ph.D. students, MD students, and junior clinician-scientists with an interest in rheumatic or chronic inflammatory diseases.

Inflammation is a part of many human diseases. It can occur, for example, in cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory and osteoarthritis, and inflammatory bowel disease. Although very different from each other, there is some overlap between these illnesses in some of the biological mechanisms involved: such as the molecular processes involved in inflammation. Yet, these processes are not fully understood at this point and further research is needed to better understand what happens to cause inflammation in these illnesses. Today's early career researchers are the research leaders of the future. Therefore, it's important to give them the opportunity to engage with topics like this jointly and in-depth to allow them to best shape the future directions for research.
