The CRC 807 integrated research training group, referred to by the students as TRAM (TRansport Across Membranes), takes advantage of the expertise within the CRC 807 to train PhD students in topics and techniques relevant for their research. Our structured graduate program merges research in competitive areas with complementary scientific education and transferable skills training. This enables TRAM students to broaden their knowledge and learn the necessary skills to become independent researchers, well-prepared for both academic as well as industry related research.
To help achieve these goals, TRAM has established an individual mentoring concept for each TRAM student. The mentoring team defines additional scientific and generic education opportunities the student should implement, and provides continuous feedback and support. Additionally, the annual CRC 807 retreats and conferences are seen as a great opportunity to present and discuss project data and students’ progress in a focused but nevertheless enjoyable atmosphere.
TRAM students benefit not only from these excellent research and education opportunities, they also have the opportunity to apply for extensive TRAM travel funds to support their visits at international conferences and their scientific exchange with external labs. Furthermore, TRAM grants attractive short-term fellowships to new TRAM members during their initial PhD phase. Qualified candidates are invited to submit stipend applications throughout the whole year.

The IRTG - TRAM includes two committees, the steering committee and the guest speaker seminar committee. The TRAM steering committee is responsible for all current issues arising and decisions relating to the IRTG, and defines the core mandatory education of TRAM.
