Cardiovascular Research @ Bayer

You are a young scientist in cardiovascular research and you want to improve people`s lives? Then our scientific workshop “Cardiovascular Research @ Bayer” is a great chance for you to connect with Bayer!


Our Workshop

This workshop is an excellent occasion to discuss Bayer`s developments and projects in cardiovascular research, to present your individual scientific results and to explore job opportunities within Bayer’s R&D organization in Wuppertal-Aprath (Germany) or in Boston (USA).
Bayer’s activities in this exciting field are reflected by an equally broad spectrum of opportunities for natural scientists (Biology, Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Genetics), as well as pharmacists and physicians, covering aspects as diverse as:



  • Being part of a team that identifies and characterizes novel treatment options for patients with cardiovascular diseases (including the indications heart failure, arrhythmia, thrombosis, inflammatory and fibrotic lung diseases, acute organ dysfunction, and kidney diseases)


  • Working in research laboratories and planning, executing and evaluating preclinical pharmacology studies in the field of cardiovascular diseases research


  • Participating in interdisciplinary teams and projects from target identification, target validation to optimization of substances and preclinical studies

Currently as well as in the near future, we are looking for scientists who are keen to make an impact and who have the passion to innovate.


The event takes place in the “Sea Crest Beach Hotel” in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA. The beach hotel in a calm and nice location and relatively close to Boston provides a perfect setting for scientific exchange and also for hikes and sightseeing.

The workshop will consist, on the one hand, of Poster Sessions where every participant will have the chance to show his or her current scientific research or project. On the other hand there will be Case Studies for the participants in order to discuss relevant scientific questions from Bayer’s business.

There will also be several talks about cardiovascular research as well as a talk about the experiences during the first year in job at Bayer.


Besides the working sessions there will be enough time for networking, get-together and for personal discussions with managers and experts from Bayer.

Your Profile
