University of Heidelberg

The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology


The Hartmut Hoffmann-Berling International Graduate School of Molecular and Cellular Biology (HBIGS) was founded in October 2007. The vision of the Graduate School is to attract the best and brightest doctoral researchers from around the world to pursue doctoral studies at Heidelberg University by offering excellent research opportunities and comprehensive academic and complementary training in a vibrant and stimulating scientific environment.
The focus of the Graduate School on molecular and cellular biology takes into account that molecular and cellular biology provides the conceptual and technological foundation on which most other fields, sub-disciplines and specialized areas of life and biosciences rest - from structural biology to bioinformatics, from molecular medicine to biotechnology, and from immunology to systems biology.
A higher qualification in molecular and cellular biology will, therefore, prepare early stage researchers for exciting and challenging careers in academia and in the public and private sector.
