The International Max Planck Research School for Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences

WELCOME to the International Max Planck Research School for Molecular and Cellular Life Sciences, (IMPRS-LS). Our PhD program brings together two renowned Munich based Max Planck Institutes (MPIs), the MPI of Biochemistry and the MPI of Neurobiology as well as two leading partner-universities, the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität (LMU) and the Technische Universität München (TUM) to deliver first class training for the worlds most promising young scientists.

Situated in an outstanding research environment, the school’s research activities center around three distinct but well connected research branches: Our students and their supervisors strive to uncover molecular mechanisms regulating biological processes, analyze the resulting complex biological systems and decipher the intricate network of neural circuits leading to corresponding behavioral responses.

Our truly international students enjoy dedicated training workshops, world class research facilities and supervision from faculty members who are leaders in their respective fields. Combined with a focus on early independence in research, our PhD program ensures those aiming for a successful career in science have the very best starting platform.
