Mechanobiology in Epithelial 3D Tissue Constructs (ME3T)


The recently approved DFG Research Training Grant (RTG) "Mechanobiology in Epithelial 3D Tissue Constructs" (ME3T) will train doctoral researchers in the burgeoning fields of mechanobiology and tissue engineering. The German Research Council (DFG) will support the training of 13 doctoral researchers with ~5 million Euro. These doctoral researchers together with additional associated doctoral researchers will be coached by 9 supervisors from 5 faculties of RWTH Aachen University, 1 supervisor from Forschungszentrum Jülich and 1 supervisor from the University of Erlangen together with 10 junior supervisors. The RTG will be headed by Prof. Rudolf Leube (Speaker) and Prof. Rudolf Merkel (Vice Speaker).
