CombiDiag DC Fellowship

University of Rostock

The Research Programme

CombiDiag is a Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN) funded under the Horizon Europe Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions to train ten Doctoral Candidates (DC) for the field of multimodal peripheral markers and their combinatorial use for diagnosis of early-stage Alzheimer’s disease. It brings together leading academic and industrial experts from six countries in Europe, and uses their synergies to build a triple‑i (interdisciplinary, intersectoral and international) research & training platform with the required multidisciplinary expertise and cutting-edge technologies. CombiDiag Fellows will be trained under the Vitae Researcher Development Framework innovatively combined with the CombiDiag research platform for gaining interdisciplinary scientific and transferable skills as well as personal quality, creative thinking and business mind-set. The MSCA-DN has a highly innovative research programme for the discovery of AD peripheral markers, including body fluids, digital biomarkers, and brain activity, preclinical and clinical validation, development of novel biosensing techniques and point of care tools for clinical research and care delivery and technological exploitation of the diagnostics. The advances of the CombiDiag project will strongly support improved care provision and development of disease-modifying treatments and preventive strategies for dementia patients, and most importantly produce a new generation of Fellows who will take leading roles in future developments in this and related areas.

The PhD fellowship at the University Medicine Rostock

The PhD position is for translational clinical research. The PhD project mainly analyzes the diagnostic and prognostic use of novel biomarkers in patients with neurodegenerative dementias, including digital sensor technology, blood, and brain activity. Relevant issues include:

i) whether digital biomarkers of speech and activity reach clinically relevant diagnostic and prognostic accuracy in reference to established biomarker-based diagnosis and imaging endophenotypes of prodromal and clinical Alzheimer’s disease dementia;

ii) do digital markers of sleep associate with measures of brain clearance in human studies and transgenic models;

iii) the design of clinical diagnostic and prognostic trials in monocenter and multicentre set-up including recruitment from university centers and primary care. Clinical outcomes shall be studied across countries, with a particular emphasis on understanding what constitutes the relevance of diagnostic and prognostic tests for a given health care system.

Application process

CombiDiag Fellows are required to apply to, and be admitted by, their host institutions or academic partners for their PhD degrees. Fellows are exempt from tuition fees for their PhD studies.
