Scientific orientation

The scientific orientation of EURIdoc is based on the immunological foci that exist in Basel, Freiburg, Karlsruhe and Strasbourg. The core topics of EURIdoc are haematopoiesis and development of the immune system, innate and adaptive immunity as well as immune-related diseases. The emphasis is on both basic research and work on applications. In the long term, these may lead to new drugs, vaccines or therapies, for example for cancer, viral or autoimmune diseases. The project also focuses on the most urgent immunological problem of our time, SARS-CoV-2, and plans to develop new therapies for Covid-19.

Interdisciplinary and intersectoral training

Beyond the university sector, the doctoral candidates will also work with four clinics and ten industrial partners. They will have the opportunity to spend research periods in leading pharmaceutical companies as well as in small and medium-sized companies.

EURIdoc is based on the existing close cooperation between the participating immunologists from Basel, Freiburg and Strasbourg. Since 2017, they have been networked as the Upper Rhine Immunology Group (URI group) and organise annual clinical workshops and scientific meetings.


Within the framework of the COFUND programme of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (Horizon 2020), EURIdoc has been selected by the European Commission as an innovative international and interdisciplinary doctoral programme to receive funding of 3 million euros.
