Research Fields

IMPRS students tackle research projects bridging the gap from molecules to living organisms. Transcending the boundaries of traditional life science disciplines,  methodologies and scientific approaches from different fields are combined to address topics inaccessible by isolated research areas. Access to wide-ranging, cutting-edge facilities enables this approach.
