German SYSCID partners among the researchers to receive eight million Euros for Life Science Research in Schleswig-Holstein

Two SYSCID project partners, coordinator Philip Rosenstiel and Andre Franke from the University of Kiel, are among the eight renown researchers to be granted a “Schleswig-Holstein-Excellence-Chair“ (SH Chair) awarded by the Cluster of Excellence “Inflammation at Interfaces”.

With an overall budget of eight million Euros, the SH Chairs aim to attract excellent researchers to the local research centers in Schleswig-Holstein. Granted for a maximum duration of six years, they offer the opportunity to reinforce the working groups of each chair holder with an additional assistant professor position.

While five million Euros are financed through the German federal state, three million Euros are funded by the committee for medical research of the state Schleswig-Holstein, a joint body of the two universities Kiel University and University of Lübeck as well as the University Medical Center Schleswig-Holstein (UKSH).
