Exciting DoC Kick-Off Meeting in Regensburg

Exciting DoC Kick-Off Meeting  Marks the Beginning of exTra Doctoral Network Project!

We are thrilled to announce the successful DoC kick-off of exTra doctoral network project focused on Extracorporeal Photopheresis (ECP) in solid organ transplantation. The meeting was held in Regensburg on 16-17 April and brought together project partners for 2 days filled with insightful discussions and promising presentations from our talented doctoral candidates.

The attendees had the opportunity to engage with leading experts in the field of ECP, gaining valuable knowledge and setting the stage for collaborative innovation. However, the true stars of the event were undoubtedly the 11 exceptional students, who showcased their ambitious project plans and dedication to driving progress in ECP research and application.

Over the next 36 months, these doctoral candidates will serve as the driving force behind exTra project, leveraging their expertise to generate groundbreaking data and insights. Their work will be instrumental in advancing our understanding of ECP and paving the way for its translation into clinical practice.

As we embark on this exciting journey, we are filled with optimism for the impact our collective efforts will have on the future of solid organ transplantation. Stay tuned for updates as we work towards our shared goal of improving patient outcomes through innovative research and collaboration!
