About the IPP

The IPP is coordinated by the Institute of Molecular Biology - a centre of excellence in the life sciences which was founded in 2011. Core funding for the IPP comes from the three main participating institutions:

Our research groups cover a broad range of expertise in genomics, biochemistry, proteomics, cell and developmental biology, bioinformatics, systems biology, and applied physics. For an overview, browse through our research topics. Techniques you can study with us include CRISPR/Cas, next-generation sequencing, modeling of gene networks, mass spectrometry or super-resolution microscopy. Our scientific and social events and the open and vibrant atmosphere in the IPP ensure high levels of exchange and collaboration between the participating groups.

This PhD programme thus provides an excellent opportunity to interact closely with a number of top scientists during the course of your study.
