The CPI Academy

The advancement, support and training of junior and early-mid career scientists in basic, translational and clinical research are central priorities of the CPI. A major goal is to promote the early independence and support young scientists at the potential “cliffs of failure”. For example at the transition between PhD student and postdoc, from postdoc to established group leader, and from established group leader to professorship position. We have designed a number of initiatives to identify and support “next generation leaders” at different career stages in the field of cardiopulmonary science and medicine.
