Why do you think the CPI is a unique catalyzer of your research?

The CPI is a hub of the brightest minds and is amongst the world’s most acclaimed research organizations dedicated to heart and lung research.  The research at CPI is spectacular. It’s that simple.

 

 

Why would you recommend joining the CPI Academy?

The CPI Academy brings out the very best of young researchers from the very beginning of their careers. CPI fosters interaction with exceptional researchers – not only with members within the CPI – but also with top researchers from around the world. These interactions have been essential to develop my research in creative ways and prepared me to establish my own research group.

Why do you think the CPI is a unique catalyzer of your research?

The CPI combines the international elite of cardio-pulmonary researchers in one organization. By being a part of this consortium it has never been easier for me to directly interact with high ranking scientists and field specialists. This allows strong basic and translational collaborations, the immediacy of which was only exemplified by establishment of joint research projects at the onset of the COVID19 pandemic.

Why would you recommend joining the CPI Academy?

The CPI Academy provides a protected space allowing young researchers to grow. Early independence can be acquired by start-up opportunities, such as the Postdoc Grant or the Postdoc Start-Up Grant, but also by networking during the high-quality webinars and symposia. Therefore, the CPI Academy not only fosters and maintains interactions among the CPI members but also establishes new ones with highly reputed international scientists.
