Women Connect Series

In September 2021, the “Women Connect Series” network for female researchers was founded. Together, the TRR259, TRR237, Cluster ImmunoSensation2, iRTG2168 and SFB1454 want to organize a network with workshops, lectures and network events for female scientists.

As a prelude, we offer an exciting workshop on the topic of "Improvement of visibility and media strategy" followed by an exchange of experiences between the participants and the coach.

Young Investigator Award

Big congratulations to our TRR259 member, Dr. Mohammed Rabiul Hosen!
Dr. Hosen received the Young Investigator Award (YIA) in Basic Science Session from the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) for the presentation of his latest translational work on ESC congress-2021, from August 27-30, 2021.


The third annual meeting of the TRR259 took place this year as a hybrid event. In order to talk to all TRR259 members and associated members about the research results in the field of aortic diseases, all lectures to Bonn, Cologne, and Düsseldorf were streamed live from the Schlosshotel St. Goar. The successes of the last 2 years were discussed together and further plans for future projects were presented.

Picture a scientist

Together with the TRR237, ImmunoSensation2 and the IRTG2168 the TRR259 is organizing a film screening event showing the movie: PICTURE A SCIENTIST.

PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights.
