Housed at three sites in Dresden, our PhD students work with top scientists from over 50 nations to ask: How do cells form tissues and organisms? Our PhD students show tremendous passion for cross-disciplinary science and pursue new directions in research. This site introduces you to our Predocs, Group Leaders, and Program. Learn more in a nutshell about our blend of quality research and fast-paced learning. If you have the drive and discipline to succeed in this environment, we encourage you to apply.
