Join our Doctoral Schools
The DIPP combines two powerful partners dedicated to first-class doctoral training at the frontier of science:
International Max Planck Research School for Cell, Developmental, and Systems Biology
Integrating Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Computer Science, the IMPRS-CellDevoSys trains talented young researchers seeking a doctoral degree. 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.
