A great success for the Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering!
DIGS-BB succeeded with its proposal in the second round of the German Excellence Initiative! With funding for another five years, DIGS-BB can continue its award-winning concept in graduate training and introduce a number of innovations in structure and content. These changes include the exciting addition of systems biology to the CellDevo program (now:CellDevoSys program), NanoBio's new focus on biophysics and bioengineering (now: BioEng program), the "Research Exchange Program", funding networking with participating labs world-wide, and the "Springboard-to-Postdoc" program. With career advantages like this DIGS-BB will continue to recruit excellent PhD students from all over the world and to provide top-notch research and training opportunities.
In recent years Dresden has developed with a tremendous pace to one of the leading scientific centers in the areas of cell and developmental biology, biomedicine, biophysics and bioengineering. Biopolis Dresden is characterized by a vibrant international community of researchers that performs cross-disciplinary research at the highest level in state-of-the art research centers at the Technische Universität Dresden (TUD) and research institutions as the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics (MPI-CBG), the Max Planck Institute for the Physics of Complex Systems (MPI-PKS), the Leibniz Institute for Polymer Research (IPF) and the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR). The unique combination of scientific expertise makes Biopolis Dresden a highly attractive place for young researchers working towards a doctoral degree.
The Dresden International Graduate School for Biomedicine and Bioengineering (DIGS-BB) in joint association with the International Max Planck Research School for Cell, Developmental and Systems Biology (IMPRS-CellDevoSys), representing a faculty of more than 80 group leaders, offers international PhD Programs that provide outstanding opportunities for university graduates to work towards a PhD with ambitious thesis projects in the following three interconnected research areas:
1. Cell, Developmental and Systems Biology (CellDevoSys Program)
2. Regenerative Medicine (RegMed Program)
3. Molecular Bioengineering and Biophysics (BioEng Program)
