Online ISS: Activities & Training

The Online ISS offers young researchers the opportunity to develop their skills in an informal and international atmosphere. Find out below how.

Lecture series on Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Genome Stability

Lectures and discussion groups by ISS Group Leaders will offer comprehensive insights into the latest research findings and enable you to identify key open questions in gene regulation, epigenetics, DNA repair and genome stability.


"ISS at IMB offers a great environment, resources and fascinating scientific questions. It is an excellent opportunity – just take it and make the most of it!"

Scientific Work Groups

As an ISS student, you will work in groups on the topics of each lecture from the ISS Lecture Series on Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Genome Stability.




"The balance between theory and practice was extremely stimulating and useful - I feel I've grown so much!"

Training in professional skills

During the ISS, you will learn valuable professional skills, such as presentation and communication techniques that are required for a successful career as a scientist.



"The ISS at IMB is a unique opportunity to master skills essential to researchers."

Networking with other researchers

At the Online ISS 2022, you will have several opportunities to get to know other researchers and students participating in IMB’s International PhD Programme on “Gene Regulation, Epigenetics and Genome Stability”. Our supplementary programme of social activities (including virtual coffee breaks, toursinteractive games and quizzes) will allow you to network with other young scientists in Mainz and all over the world.


"The Online ISS at IMB was a very worthwhile experience for me. I met a lot of exceptional people and learned about the cutting edge research that is taking place at the IMB directly from scientists at the forefront of their field."
