With the joint effort of partners from Maastricht, Marseille and Dortmund the Center for Thrombosis and Hemostasis (CTH) in Mainz has initiated an EU-funded European Joint Doctorates (EJD) program Thrombo-inflammation in cardiovascular disease (TICARDIO). In this strategic alliance, based on complementary expertise and previous fruitful and strong cooperation, PhD students are being trained to unravel multifaceted mechanisms of thrombo-inflammation in the excellent laboratories of the CTH, the  School for Cardiovascular Diseases (CARIM), the Center  for Cardiovascular and Nutrition Research (C2VN) and the Leibniz-Institut für Analytische Wissenschaften (ISAS), as well as exposed to career options in the laboratories of commercial partners (Bayer, BioCytex, Boehringer Ingelheim, TRON, 2M Engineering).

TICARDIO has received funding from the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 813409
