Welcome to the RTG 2737 – STRESSistance

Molecular mechanisms to preserve the functionality of
membranes and compartments during stress conditions


It becomes more and more evident that very different stress conditions, such as heat, drought or the exposure to reactive oxidants, are counteracted by surprisingly similar “routines” of response programs,  It is not well understood how these different responses are orchestrated and shaped in order to allow specific reactions of cell and organisms to very different situations. The RTG 2737 studies such stress programs and the response routines they elicit in a cooperative effort with a comparative and integrative approach and offers an attractive, tailored training program to PhD students that includes workshops, soft skill courses, ‘theory & practice’ seminars, conferences, students-only meetings as well as a close partnership with PIs and external mentors.
