Sonderforschungsbereich, CRC 1278 “PolyTarget”

In Jena, functional and innovative pharmaceutical polymers for novel drug formulations for the treatment of infectious diseases by targeted modulation of the immune response are being developed. Our group is also part of the great consortium. The developed platform technology will help in preparing for future infections and pandemics as well as overcoming allergic side effects of existing and future drugs and vaccines.

Young Scientist Awards

of the GdCh Macromolecular Chemistry Division.

In addition to the Reimund Stadler Award, the jury decided to award two additional Young Scientist Prizes to Dr. Stefan Naumann (University of Stuttgart) and Dr. Anja Träger (Friedrich Schiller University Jena). But the event was not only a success in view of the prize, but also because the networking character of the event was excellent and young people were offered an ideal platform to present their work in front of other young scientists and an experienced auditorium.
