Universität Ulm - PULMOSENS

Founded in 1967, the University of Ulm (ULM) enjoys an excellent reputation for innovative research, interdisciplinarity and successful training. Its 4 faculties (Engineering, Computer Science and Psychology; Mathematics and Economics; Medicine; Natural Sciences) support some 10,500 students. The university plays a central role of the Science City of Ulm, not only as the region's biggest educational facility, but also as an important motor for R&D.

The research profile of the youngest university in the state of Baden-Württemberg is characterized by its focus on life sciences and medicine, bio-, nano- and energy-materials, financial services and their mathematical methodology as well as communications-, information- and quantum-technology.
This is underlined by achieving a third party funding of almost 100Mio EUR per year. Also, the Times Higher Education Ranking regularly places ULM among the best young universities in Germany and worldwide.

The research training group (Graduiertenkolleg GRK 2203) PULMOSENS, which has been granted by the DFG in May 2016 to start in October 2016, is focused on innovating sensory methods and its application to the functional examination of the lung epithelium under physiological and pathophysiological conditions. For this purpose novel measurement systems will be developed for single cells, differentiated epithelia, epi-endothelial co-cultures as well as the whole organ.
