Predoc Course

The Predoc Course provides an introduction to the wealth of research fields, methods, and approaches available within our program.

In exploring our research mission, increasingly complex questions arise, at different scales from molecules to organisms, often requiring an interdisciplinary merging of experimental and theoretical approaches. The course aims to foster interaction and cooperation, encouraging PhD students to think beyond their own research fields and to cross disciplinary and institutional boundaries.

In 2017, the IMPRS-CellDevoSys is pioneering a new model for the Predoc Course, with one week devoted to exploring each of the 4 broad research areas in our program: Biology, Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Computational Biology. The mixture of lectures and practical sessions introduce new PhD students to the program faculty, and also engage in knowledge exchange with their peers, according to their respective educational background and expertise.
