The interdisciplinary collaboration between different scientific fields and methodologies is central to our approach. The creative cross-pollination between biology, physics, chemistry, and computer science in our program can break down walls and yield fascinating results. One formal structure that exemplifies this are our so-called "ELBE PhD Projects."
Current ELBE PhD Projects
The Center for Systems Biology Dresden supports collaborative and interdisciplinary PhD thesis projects that fit the CSBD mission: “Where computer science and physics meet biology." IMPRS-CellDevoSys PhD students may be selected for these especially creative, ground-breaking projects. A hallmark of these projects is the cross-pollination of two involved group leaders from different disciplines such as biology, physics, computer science, or chemistry, and the merging of experimental and theoretical/computational approaches. Funded projects are competitively awarded and judged to have the potential to contribute to both involved disciplines.
