We are pleased to welcome our new Jung Fellows! As of now, five promising doctoral students in human medicine will receive a scholarship of 15,000 euros for a year dedicated to research. We congratulate Kai Winterberg, Isabel Graf, Anton Offermanns and Esther Mehmel (from left) as well as Sandro Jäckle (not in the picture) on joining the Jung family and look forward to supporting them on their way with the excellent contacts of our foundation members and the knowledge of our award winners.
We are also particularly pleased that we were able to meet our new fellows at a small networking meeting at the foundation for dinner together and thus allow them to establish initial connections with other fellows of the Jung Foundation as well. With the Jung Fellowship Program, we have extended our support for the first time in 2022 to include young scientists and physicians. The program is initially limited to Hamburg and supports selected doctoral candidates in medicine with a scholarship totaling 15,000 euros. This money is deliberately not earmarked for a specific purpose, so that we can enable the future physicians to devote themselves full-time to demanding research projects and even take a break from their medical studies. The program also offers other advantages: The fellows benefit from contacts to outstanding scientists in the field and the extensive knowledge of the foundation's highly esteemed panel members. The young physicians can also participate in the Ernst Jung Symposium for Medical Research, at which the award winners of the Jung Foundation present their excellent research work every year.
