Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin - IRI Life Sciences

The IRI Graduate School "Life Sciences"

lab discussion


The IRI Graduate School offers high class education in an interdisciplinary environment built around the core research areas of IRI Life Sciences. The IRI Graduate School provides an umbrella structure for PhD students of IRI graduate training initiatives and IRI members. Here, we follow an innovative approach by not focusing on a specific research topic. Instead, we aim to bridge the traditional boundaries of disciplines and aim to support an open, cooperative and interdisciplinary way. Overlapping research interests or methodological parallels ensure a succesfull and supportive network among the students.
